The stronger el niño episodes of enhanced ocean temperatures (2–8 °c [36–144 °f] above normal) are typically accompanied by altered weather patterns around the globe, such as droughts in australia, northeastern brazil, and the highlands of southern peru, excessive summer rainfall along the coast of ecuador and northern peru, severe. Meteorology is the science which deals with the phenomena of the atmosphere, especially weather and weather conditions it involves the study of the character of the atmosphere and the events and.

- El niño is one of the most important weather-producing phenomena on earth the changing ocean conditions disrupt weather patterns and marine life in the pacific and around the world satellites are unraveling the many traits of this wild child of weather.
Abstract at times when attention on climate issues is strongly focused on the assessment of potential impacts of future climate change due to the intensification of the planetary greenhouse effect, it is perhaps pertinent to look back and explore the consequences of past climate variability. Oscillation, a shift in the equatorial weather and air flow pattern over the pacific ocean the el niño - southern oscillation, or hereafter referred to as enso, results in major global weather changes. An el niño is associated with warm and very wet weather months in april–october along the coasts of northern peru and ecuador, causing major flooding whenever the event is strong or extreme.
