        Earth System: El Nino's Influence on Hurricane Formation

        Warm water fuels the tropical storms that ultimately form hurricanes. In this video segment adapted from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, learn how El Niño events—climatic anomalies that occur periodically in the Pacific Ocean—alter the course of atmospheric circulation and lessen hurricane formation in the Atlantic Ocean.

        This video is available in both English and Spanish audio, along with corresponding closed captions.
