El Nino-Southern oscillation

Holbrook, Neil J. and Brown, Jaclyn N. and Davidson, Julie and Feng, Ming and Hobday, Alistair J. and Lough, Janice M. and McGregor, Shayne and Power, Scott B. and Risbey, James S. (2012) El Nino-Southern oscillation. In: Marine Climate Change in Australia: Impacts and Adaptation Responses - 2012 REPORT CARD. CSIRO, Australia, pp. 81-112. ISBN 978-0-643-10928-5


What is happening:
While observed El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) variability is within the broad range of natural variability, the possibility that anthropogenic forcing has
influenced ENSO cannot be ruled out.

What is expected:
While the mean climate of the Pacific is expected to change, it is unclear how the amplitude or frequency of ENSO will change (if at all) over the next 100 years.

What we are doing about it:
Investing in Pacific region climate change programs, high quality data collection and monitoring, improving pre-instrumental ENSO reconstructions, process studies to
understand mechanisms of variability, and enhancing modelling capabilities.
