El Niņo is a term originally used to describe the appearance of warm (surface) water from time to time in
the eastern equatorial Pacific region along the coasts of Peru and Ecuador.
La Niņa is defined as cooler than normal sea-surface temperatures in the central and eastern tropical Pacific ocean that impact global weather patterns. La Niņa conditions recur every few years and can persist for as long as two years.
