Hydrographic data collected along the West Coast of North America from January 1997 to January 1999 have been compiled into an electronic atlas of the 1997-98 El Nino event. This report comes with a CD-ROM copy of the atlas for use with a personal computer.

2 days ago El Niño and La Niña are the warm and cool phases of a recurring climate pattern across the tropical Pacific—the El Niño-Southern Oscillation, or “ENSO” for short. The pattern can shift back and forth irregularly every two to seven years, and each phase triggers predictable disruptions of temperature, precipitation, and :// The west coast of North America was unusually stormy during the winter season, and fish catches were dramatically reduced from Chile to Alaska. The El Niño event of was the first El Niño event to be scientifically monitor ed from beginning to :// The – El Niño was notable not only for its maximum magnitude but also for dramatic transitions out of the cool conditions of – and into the strong – La Niña.

For example, conditions at the start of were remarkably similar to the /8 ENSO event and so therefore it was expected to be an El Niño year. Yet, as late as August, the initial warning signs were not appearing in the atmosphere to precede warming in the oceans meaning that the likelihood of El Niño occurring was dropping off but not The extreme coastal El Niño of March caused devastating flooding in coastal Peru but its mechanism remains unclear. Here the authors investigate the Look back through records of these (data are online); our coast has experienced cooling conditions since However, everything began changing in , with the PDO indicating warming waters, a warm "blob" of water off the West Coast of North America, and on top of that, an El The main impact during such a tsunami event would be the ocean-side communities on the open coast.
