Was El Niño unaffected by the Little Ice Age ? - The second half of the XXth century was marked by particularly closely-spaced intense occurrences of El Niño. Researchers are studying the behaviour of El Niño during periods in the past when the climate was different from what it is now.

An extremely intense El Niño event in 1983 prompted an international surveillance programme, involving the deployment of moored or drift measurement buoys and observation satellites. This research effort is proving to be fruitful. The data obtained provide a key to understanding how the two components of the now-famous two-phase system El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) -El Niño and its reverse counterpart La Niña- are generated.
