NOAA El Niño
ENSO provides teachers with the opportunity to have students discover ways that the oceanic and atmospheric systems interact and how those interactions can impact ecosystems and human society. The resources in this Collection can be used to help learn about; the basics of ENSO, the inter-relationship of Earth systems, the impacts of these interactions, and how to use and analyze data. These resources can be used to teach students how scientists study the complexity of the Earth's systems and how
