Hey I have a question on the impacts of El Niño and La Niña and I'm not sure what they are.

From my own research, El Niño is the movement of warm water across the Pacific Ocean while La Niña is the opposite.

Could anyone help? thanks!

the normal conditions on the pacific ocean are that trade winds blow west across the pacific ocean bringing low pressure to australia and high pressure to south america. This leads to rain in australia and dry weather in south america.
el nino is where these trade winds weaken or even reverse, leading to higher pressure in australia and lower pressure in south america, this can cause droughts in australia and floods in south america.
la nina is a more extreme version of the normal conditions which can lead to flooding in australia and droughts in south america.
