The ENSO phenomenon occurs in the Tropical Pacific. Do you see impacts outside of this region in the winter? In the summer? List two regions outside of the tropics affected by warm (El Niņo) events. List two in regions not next to the Pacific Ocean that are effected by warm (El Niņo) events. (5pts)











How is Arizona affected by warm (El Niņo) events? By cold (La Niņa) events? Be sure to describe both seasons. (3 pts)










Warm (El Niņo) events have been associated with famine in India. Does this surprise you? Why or why not? (2pts)
