Economies wither. And thats just in the coastal villages. El Nino - The Christ Child - and its climatological opposite, La Nina, are global events so powerful and strange they virtually have personalities. Many remember the El Nino and La Nina seasons of 1982-83 and 1997-98, which brought floods, tornadoes, droughts and snow to unusual locales. Increased study of these Tropical Pacific phenomena, also known as ENSO (the El Nino and Southern Oscillation), have now enabled scientists to predict the ENSO state as much as 12 to 18 months in advance and have helped to shape weather prediction in general. Here, the basic causes and effects of El Nino and La Nina are chronicled for anyone in search of information on these natural phenomena.
