Title: About El Nino
Alternate Title: Learn About Meterology: About El Nino
Url: http://www.bom.gov.au/climate/glossary/elnino.shtml
Publisher: Australia. Bureau of Meteorology
Description: About El Nino is a collection of journal articles and books that have been written about El Nino/Southern Oscillation and compiled by the Bureau of Meteorology, Australia. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Adminstration (NOAA), El Nino is "a disruption of the ocean-atmosphere system in the tropical Pacific having important consequences for weather around the globe." It is caused by a change in trade wind patterns in the central and western Pacific ocean, and causes a large volume of ocean to be warmed (typically about 20 degrees of latitude by 90 degrees of longitude). It happens at irregular intervals and has global climatic consequences (regional flooding and droughts, in particular).
