EL NIÑO AND EXTREME WEATHER EVENTS
El Niño is a climate pattern that occurs every few years in the Pacific Ocean.
During an El Niño event, the ocean's surface temperature becomes warmer than usual, which can cause changes in weather patterns around the world.
El Niño can cause extreme weather events such as droughts, floods, and hurricanes.
The severity and frequency of El Niño events may be increasing due to global warming.
Scientists are studying El Niño to better understand its effects on the climate and to improve predictions of natural disasters.
Understanding the relationship between El Niño and extreme weather events is important for preparing for and mitigating the impacts of these events.
