Seven years later, El Nino formed again in Australia
Seven years later, the El Niño weather phenomenon has reappeared in the Pacific region, the Australian Bureau of Meteorology said in its official report on Tuesday.
This announcement came two weeks after the announcement of the World Meteorological Organization, which submitted its report after seven years on the conditions necessary for the development of the El Niño phenomenon in the tropical Pacific Ocean.
The Office of Climate Monitoring issued a warning in March and a warning in June due to the development of the El Niño phenomenon, the office’s climate monitoring officer said at a conference in Sydney on Tuesday.
The Australian Bureau of Meteorology has seen temperatures rise during a temperature swing phenomenon known as the Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD).
According to the latest report from the Climate Update Programme, which studies climate drivers in the Pacific, Indo-Pacific and tropical oceans, the occurrence of the two spring phenomena together reinforces the Bureau of Meteorology’s forecast of warmer and drier weather for much of Australia over the next year. Three months.
The bureau stressed that if a positive IOD and El Niño occur at the same time, it will further exacerbate the drought. They warn that due to El Niño, we can likely expect global warming to continue until mid-2024.
Experts have blamed climate change, rising sea surface temperatures and the El Niño climate phenomenon for the warmer weather. As a result of the El Niño phenomenon, record temperatures were already measured in the Pacific Ocean in May, and in June, the northern part of the Atlantic Ocean was subjected to unprecedented marine heat waves.
The natural, cyclical climate phenomenon returns this year after the “La Nina” climate phenomenon that lasted for three years, which led to a decrease in the global temperature in the Pacific Ocean. As a result of the influence of El Niño, extreme weather phenomena can be expected in the second half of the year – tropical cyclones in the Pacific islands, heavy rains in South America, drought in Australia and parts of Asia.
