The Oryx Resource Guide to El Niño and La Niña

Synopsis

Fish die. Seagulls starve. Economies wither. And that's just in the coastal villages. Here, the basic causes and effects of El Nino and La Nina, also known as ENSO (The El Nino and Southern Oscillation), are carefully chronicled for anyone in search of accurate and current information on these natural phenomena. Chapters are devoted to the historical, meteorological, ecological, and economic impacts of ENSO. A chronology of key events, biographies of important researchers, illustrations and maps, and an extensive bibliography help make this a total guide to these magnificent natural cycles.
