Despite all the media attention, El Niño is only one actor on the global climate stage.
Ocean temperature can influence several other kinds of long-term, global climate changes like La Niña, "decadal variability," and a flip-flopping climate phenomenon in the tropical Atlantic Ocean.
Dr. Benjamin Giese and Dr. Ping Chang are among several Texas A&M oceanographers investigating these ocean-temperature influences on long-term climate changes.
In the following articles, join us as we explore the relationship between the world's oceans and the changing global climate.
Let's start with the Pacific Ocean ...
Had enough of El Niño? Investigate two other causes of long-term
climate change in the Pacific Ocean, including Niño's "little
sister" La Niña and decadal variability.
What causes a flip-flopping climate on the tropical Atlantic coasts of
northeast Brazil and West Africa?
