Enso: El Nino Southern Oscillation

Australia, 1991

Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

A very brief and effective diagrammatic explanation of ENSO, or the “El Nino” effect which periodically reverses the normal weather patterns of the Eastern Australian-Indonesian areas and South America. ENSO lasts about a year and weakens the usual easterly trade winds which bring warm air and rainfall so that the rain then falls mid-Pacific.
