AN ANALYSIS OF THE ENSO SIGNAL IN THE TROPICAL ATLANTIC AND WESTERN INDIAN OCEANS


1995


This article examines the time–space evolution of the El Nin˜o-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) signal in the tropical Atlantic and western Indian Oceans, using harmonic analysis. Composites of sea-surface temperatures (SSTs) and other variables are examined for a 24-month period beginning 6 months prior to the year of maximum warming in the Pacific (termed year 0). An ENSO signal is apparent in the Atlantic in six out of eight Pacific episodes and in the Indian Ocean in all eight episodes. Warming begins along the south-eastern Atlantic coast early in year 0, some months later elsewhere in the Atlantic and in the Indian Ocean. Maximum warming occurs in the Atlantic in October–December of year 0, but in the following January–March...
