The Southern Oscillation (Variability of the Tropical Atmosphere) -- Oceanic Variability in the Tropics -- Oceanic Adjustment. I -- Oceanic Adjustment. II -- Models of Tropical Atmosphere -- Interactions between the Ocean and Atmosphere.
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.
