New Podcast & Briefing Paper on El Niño

We are excited to announce the publication of the 5th Climate Science Briefing Paper on El Niño, as well as an accompanying podcast.

The Society are working on producing more digital content, with the podcast a new way for the Society to communicate topics in meteorology and climate science to a wider audience. Our guest this week is Professor Adam Scaife, who works at the Met Office where he leads their monthly to decadal prediction work while carrying out personal research on climate variability.

The RMetS Climate Science Communication Group is producing a series of Climate Science Briefing Papers with the aim of these Briefing Papers to clearly and concisely explain important aspects of climate science. In the El Niño briefing paper, topics covered include:

  • What is El Niño? 
  • What causes an El Niño event? 
  • How do we measure El Niño? 
  • Impacts of El Niño and La Niña 
  • How does El Niño affect global temperature? 
  • El Niño and climate change
