@bul:* Includes a comprehensive and up-to-date research survey
* Discusses in detail sophisticated computer models
* Provides a clear exposition of the major problems which prevent more accurate predictions of El Nino


El Nino and the Southern Oscillation is by far the most striking phenomenon caused by the interplay of ocean and atmosphere. It can be explained neither in strictly oceanographic nor strictly meteorological terms. This volume provides a brief history of the subject, summarizes the oceanographic and meteorological observations and theories, and discusses the recent advances in computer modeling studies of the phenomenon.


Physical oceanographers, meteorologists/climatologists, biological oceanographers, and marine biologists.

Quotes and reviews

@qu:"The book will be indispensable to anyone attempting to penetrate the large and confusing literature; Philander has made a good story of it."
@qu:"George Philander in his new book captures the story behind the present embryonic science of forecasting climate variability, and comprehensively explores the coupled physics of the atmosphere and oceans that forms the basis of this science."
