El nino is an atmospheric phenomenon happening at regular interval of 3 to 7 years at the tropical Pacific Ocean.. It causes a tremendous amoug of heating due to temperature elevation at the ocean suface. This warmness results in floods and other such natural disturbances.

El Nino is the abnormal temporary change in the climate of the Pacific ocean around the equator. These include quite a good number of factors affecting climate all over the world

Normally the West Pacific is moist. Warm air rises over there and decends in the East Pacific. This is the Pacific Walker Cell. Over the equator an Easterly wind blows. Together with Southerly winds along the Chilean and Peruvian coasts this causes upwelling of colder water. Most years around Christmas some warmer water appears along the Ecuadorian and Northern Peruvian coasts. This phenomenon was called El Nio (the boy-child) by the local people. Every 2 - 7 years the warming of the water in the East Pacific is much more widespread, with dramatic (local, but also larger scale) consequences. This phenomenon is referred to in the literature as ENSO (El Nio / Southern oscillation), or just the initial name of the local people of Peru: El Nio.
During El Nio the moist (and warm water) area around Indonesia moves to the middle of the Pacific. Indonesia, The Philipines, SE Asia and Eastern Australia are (much) dryer than normal, while Ecuador and North Peru are much wetter than normal. Duri ...more
