El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) (ĕl nēn´yō), large-scale climatic fluctuation of the tropical Pacific Ocean and the overlying El Niño [Span.,=the child] is the South American term for the warm surface current that usually appears around Christmas in the Pacific off Ecuador and Peru and disappears by the end of March, but every two to seven years it persists for up to.

The Earth has seen El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO)—the leading mode of interannual climate variability—for at least millennia and likely over millions of years. This paper reviews previous studies from perspectives of both paleoclimate proxy data (from traditional sediment records to the latest high-resolution oxygen isotope records) and model simulations (including earlier Cited by: The possible connections between the El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) phenomenon and Indian monsoon rainfall have been widely discussed in the meteorological literature.

These variations from "normal" temperatures influence the tropical Pacific ocean—atmosphere system, which in turn impacts weather and climate around the globe. The term El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) basically refers to both the El Niño and La Niña phenomena together.

El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO in short) is a term for a natural event that takes place in the Pacific is also called El Niño and La Spanish they mean "little boy" and "little girl". El Niño happens when the sea water temperature rises in surface waters of the tropical Pacific Ocean.

Every two to five years the Pacific Ocean has this event.

Naturally, some readers will think the price is way too low, and they’ll want to pay more for the years of research that went into preparing this. The Southern Oscillation Index (SOI) is a standardized index based on the observed sea level pressure differences between Tahiti and Darwin, Australia.

The SOI is one measure of the large-scale fluctuations in air pressure occurring between the western and eastern tropical Pacific (i.e., the state of the Southern Oscillation) during El Niño. El Niño and La Niña As we saw in the previous section, coastal upwelling off of Peru makes that region one of the world’s most productive fishing grounds.

But every so often, the conditions in the region are very different. Every few years, the cold, nutrient-rich water is replaced by unusually warm water that is low in nutrients, leading to a decline in fish populations.

Abstract The El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) phenomenon is a recurrent feature of the climate in tropical regions. In this volume leading experts summarize information gained over the past decade on diverse aspects of ENSO, which have led to marked improvements in forecasting.

Companion volume to RAINMAN. This book examines the role of the El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) in society. Throughout human history, large or recurrent El Niños could cause significant disruption to societies and in some cases even contribute to political change.

Yet it is only now that we are. El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is a global coupled ocean-atmosphere phenomenon. The Pacific ocean signatures, El Niño and La Niña (also written in. S. Hastenrath, in Encyclopedia of Atmospheric Sciences (Second Edition), Southern Oscillation and El Niño.

The Southern Oscillation entails a large-scale pressure seesaw, on a time scale of 2–10 years, and with dipoles over the eastern South Pacific and the greater Indonesian-Australasian region, but spanning the global tropics.

The low phase of the SO can be defined by. El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is the strongest interannual variability and large-scale coupled atmosphere-ocean phenomenon that occurs in the climate system (Philander (Philander. Suggested Citation:"REFERENCES."National Research Council.
