Comment on this resource
The El Nino-La Nina event in 1997-1999 was particularly intense, but was also very well observed by satellites and buoys. Changes in the normal height of the oceans surface were computed from TOPEX-Poseidon altimeter data. Full description.

Comment on this resource
Water vapor is a small but significant constituent of the atmosphere, warming the planet due to the greenhouse effect and condensing to form clouds which both warm and cool the Earth in different circumstances. A key feature of global atmospheric water vapor convection is the Intertropical Convergence Zone, the low pressure region within five degrees of the equator where the trade winds converge and ...

Materials presented here are intended to help the learner understand the complex interactions between the oceans and the atmosphere that affect global weather and climate events. Users may learn how data from the TOPEX/Poseidon and Jason-1 satellites provide monitoring of oceanic conditions that may produce El-Nino/La Nina events, and help track the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO), a long-term oceanic ...
