ENSO's Effects on global temperature and precipitation
Temperature and precipitation anomalies have been
El Niño and La Niña years
(from Kiladis and
). Composites were done for overlapping seasons from the
year preceding a peak event to the year following the peak event.
The dataset used was the GHCN dataset available at NCDC
computed by removing the monthly means from 1951 to 1980 but were
not standardized. Units
are millimeters/month for
precipitation and degrees for temperature
