        Earth System: El Nino

        The climatic phenomenon known as El Niño is a disruption of the ocean-atmosphere system in the tropical Pacific that impacts weather and climate around the globe. An El Niño occurs every four to twelve years, causes die-offs of plankton and fish, and affects Pacific jet-stream winds, altering storm tracks and creating unusual weather patterns around the world. This video segment adapted from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center details some of El Niño's far-reaching effects on both marine life and humans. This video is available in both English and Spanish audio, along with corresponding closed captions.
