AS geog El Niño helpWatch
I was wondering if anyone can help me with this exam question:
Explain how El Niño cycles can lead to drought in one part of the Pacific Ocean, whilst causing heavy rain in other parts (10 marks)
A few bullet points or something would be great thanks!!

-La Nina is the reverse.
-Hot waters mean increased evaporation of water from the oceans, meaning more condensation and precipitation (rainfall). This will cause rainfall in South American coastal countries, and drought in Australia in regions like the Murray-Darling basin.
-Cold waters mean less evaporation of water, and less rainfall and therefore drought.
Hope this was of some help
