Visitors to this site can read and view satellite imagery about the most recent La Nina event, which produced less-than-normal snowfalls in Western North America. A TOPEX/Poseidon image of the Pacific ocean illustrates the warmer water and higher-than-normal sea surface height in the Western Pacific which are characteristic of a La Nina event. A discussion of the uncertainties of long-range climate ... Full description.
