  • Description:
    Lesson 11 applies the information students have already learned about oceanic-atmospheric interactions to explain and explore the El Niño phenomenon. The lecture describes the physical mechanisms behind El Niño and explains how scientists determine whether an El Niño event is occurring. In the activity, students then interpret real NOAA data to decide whether they think 2009-2010 was an El Niño year.
