El Nino development, image 2 of 2. Sea surface temperature map showing the development of El Nino conditions in the equatorial eastern Pacific Ocean. Sea surface temperatures are colour-coded according to the bar at bottom, with red being 5 degrees Celsius above average. The red/orange region extending westwards from northern South America is the developing El Nino. El Nino is a warming of surface waters in the tropical eastern Pacific Ocean. It may persist for a year or more, and causes drier conditions in Australia and South-East Asia, and wetter and warmer conditions in the Americas, with often dire effects for agriculture. For the same area on 7th August 2006, see image E265/035.
