El Nino/La Nina Visualizations

Compiled by Jen Millner at Montana State University


Find models and animations about El Nino, including sea surface level and sea surface temperature anomalies.

Browse the complete set of Visualization Collections (more info) .


If you have a visualization that would be helpful for teaching about earth science, please contribute (more info) to our continually expanding collections.

Idealized ENSO Simulation (more info) This animation shows the large-scale, wave-like motion that the tropical Pacific Ocean undergoes during a El-Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO) event.
 
El Nino Southern Oscillation Animation ( This site may be offline. ) This animation shows the vertical displacement of thermocline depth over time as it correlates to sea surface height and temperature.

El Nino Theme Page (more info) These three visualizations compare the variations in convective circulation and thermocline depth during El Nino, La Nina and normal conditions.

Sea Surface Temperature Anomalies show La Nina, El Nino and Normal Conditions in the Pacific Ocean (more info) TAO sea surface temperature comparisons.
