Impacts of El Niño and La NiñaWatch
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!
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.
