CPO's Climate Observation Division contributed to two new Ocean Today kiosk videos about  El Niño and La Niña: "El Niño and La Niña Explained" and "Observing El Niño." COD contributed to the videos and Mike McPhaden, PMEL, served as the expert reviewer.

El Niño and La Niña Explained: It can be tough to understand how ocean surface temperatures can impact weather in your backyard. This short video will help demystify this important climate and weather phenomena.

Observing El Niño:  Scientists use a wide array of emerging technologies to track and forecast the development of El Niño and La Niña months into the future. These forecasts help communities prepare for possible extreme weather.
