From El NiƱo to Atlantic NiƱo: pathways as seen in the QuikScat winds

Presenting Author: Professor Rong Fu

Although the influence of El NiƱo on Atlantic NiƱos has been shown empirically, the physical pathways behind such empirical correlation are still unclear, especially that links the timing of El NiƱo influence to the onset of Atlantic NiƱos. In this presentation, we will show how El NiƱo 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 NiƱo using QuikScat winds, DT-MSLA merged altimeter sea-level high anomalies, TRMM and PIRATA buoys.
