Although the influence of El NiĆ±o on Atlantic NiĆ±os has been shown empirically, the physical pathways behind such empirical correlation are still unclear, especially that links the timing of El NiĆ±o influence to the onset of Atlantic NiĆ±os. In this presentation, we will show how El NiĆ±o induced circulation change work with seasonal migration of the rainfall center over the South America to influence surface winds and ocean mixing layer over the tropical Atlantic, and thus Atlantic NiĆ±o using QuikScat winds, DT-MSLA merged altimeter sea-level high anomalies, TRMM and PIRATA buoys.
