Description:

Last week, the World Meteorological Organization reported that the strongest El Nino to date is coming to an end, as recent trade winds have cooled the surface of the Eastern Pacific Ocean. Meanwhile, the US government has announced that the El Nino appears to have contributed to a global warming trend that has broken temperature records in every month of 1998 (through May and counting). This week's In The News focuses on the fading of the El Nino--the weather phenomenon that occurs when the eastern Pacific Ocean becomes unusually warm, resulting in changes in weather around the world. The eight resources listed provide general and detailed information on the El Nino, including background materials, the high-tech approaches used to measure and display the phenomenon, and predictions for the year ahead.
