El Nino and La Nina

Prentice Hall

The Flash animation outlines the steps leading to the formation of the El Nino and La Nina over a ten month time span. The strength of the animation is its ability to view changes between atmospheric pressure conditions and oceanic circulation in both the plan view and cross section. These changes are viewed through three scenarios: normal conditions, El Nino conditions, and La Nina conditions. The animation can be paused and replayed to stress important points.
