21 (2): El Niño-Southern Oscillation

Eds: Braconnot P, Brierley C, Harrison SP, von Gunten L & Kiefer T

, 2013.Number of pages:

52

This 20th anniversary edition of PAGES news explores the elusive El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) from a paleo-perspective. The initiative for this special section came out of a 2011 PMIP workshop. In a mini section, a newly introduced format in the PAGES newsletter, four articles on data assimilation address methods of combining observations and model simulations. Finally, this newsletter also features several reports on the 2013 2nd Young Scientists Meeting held in Goa, India.

This product is available in the following formats:
