El Niño's Return: Exploring the Climate Phenomenon Knocking on Our Doorstep
Exploring El Niño's oceanic and coastal impacts
In this episode of the American Shoreline Podcast, co-hosts Peter Ravella and Tyler Buckingham dive deep into the subject of El Niño. While the name El Niño often generates buzz and media attention, Peter and Tyler seek to uncover the actual science behind this climate phenomenon and its impacts on the oceans and coasts. Joining them is Dr. Nathaniel Johnson, one of the foremost authorities on climate dynamics and a member of NOAA's El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) seasonal forecast team. Dr. Johnson shares his expertise on subseasonal-to-seasonal climate variability, climate prediction, and atmospheric teleconnection patterns, shedding light on the rapidly developing conditions in the tropical Pacific.
