Animation: 2015 vs 1997 El Nino

December 22, 2015

The current El Nino event is now on a scale rivaling or exceeding the gigantic 1997-98 event – which lead to the extremely warm temperatures of 1998, the warmest up to that time in the modern record.

That record has been exceeded now several times, in 2005, 2010, and 2014, but just barely. 2015 is blowing it out of the water – and if history is a guide, 2016 is set up to be even warmer.

    Based on temperature a monster El Nino, the background temperature has increased so the anomalies are higher. Based on ratios about the third biggest (the ratios between different areas of ocean).
