Caption: El Nino sea temperatures, October 2015. Satellite sea surface temperature (SST) anomaly data for the eastern Pacific for the month of October 2015. Orange-red colours are above-normal temperatures (blue is below normal). This is one of the top three El Ninos since 1950. El Nino is the warm phase of the El Nino/La Nina-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) that occurs across the tropical Pacific Ocean roughly every five years. The ENSO affects weather systems across the world, bringing extreme weather such as floods and droughts. El Nino generally causes drier conditions in Australia and South-East Asia, and wetter and warmer conditions in the Americas.
