Summary:
Help your students understand the far-reaching effects of El Nino, a weather phenomenon that originates in the tropical Pacific, but delivers power-packed climatic changes throughout the world. Produced in association with the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), this new program features dramatic location footage, helpful animation, easy-to-follow narration, and interviews with experts from Project Toga Coare, Scripps Institute of Oceanography, and NCAR. Students will get a clear picture of how the abnormal heating of ocean water off the west coast of South America can set in motion changes in water currents, wind patterns, rainfall, and drought that can destroy wildlife, habitats, and property worldwide. While especially relevant in an El Nino year, this program also shows how meteorologists are studying El Nino as a model for the possible consequences of global warming and other extreme weather events.
