This module from NASA Mission Geography focuses on how prediction can help reduce ENSO's tragic human consequences. Scientists from around the world are involved in forecasting with computer models and sophisticated measurements, how ENSO affects various countries. These scientists are increasingly being asked by policy makers and political leaders to help them plan and manage for the effects of ENSO. In this activity, students play the role of a policy maker in Peru. First, they determine what sort of ENSO variation is occurring. Then the must decide how to allocate Peru's resources to manage for possible weather-related problems.
