  • [1] A new ocean reanalysis that covers the period from 1871 to 2008 is used to explore the time-evolving characteristics of El Nino. The new reanalysis assimilates all available hydrographic and sea surface temperature data into a model of the global ocean forced with surface boundary conditions from an atmospheric reanalysis that also covers the period from 1871 through 2008. Using traditional measures of El Nino, our reanalysis shows that the timing of El Nino events is in agreement with sea… CONTINUE READING
