About this product
- DescriptionThis book offers a new perspective on those El Nis that grow to extraordinary magnitudes, putting forward the claim that these super El Nis should be grouped into an isolated cluster. All kwn super El Nis exhibit prounced features that are seldom seen in regular El Nis. Super El Ni events, which are marked by a highly deterministic life cycle, will dominate the Earth's climate for several years. This study identifies the pre-conditions and a booster mechanism that lead to the runaway growth of super El Nis, which is featured by the intense interaction between the amalous circulation in middle/high latitudes and the ENSO source area. The study t only sheds new light on the fundamental mechanism of the ENSO but also contributes to improving its extended predictability.
