"Tracking El Nino" Live Shots Resource Page

  • Released Tuesday, February 23, 2016

El Niño’s fingerprints are already on this winter’s weather forecasts, influencing extreme weather events ranging from tornados to blizzards across the United States and globally. NASA has been following this El Niño since its development, showing its striking impacts from space.

NASA scientists discuss how NASA is studying this year’s El Niño, one of the strongest on record. NASA scientists will show your viewers how Earth’s land, ocean and atmosphere are responding to El Niño-driven changes.

Suggested Questions:

1. What can you tell us about this year’s El Niño?

2. What kind of environmental changes are we seeing from El Niño?

3. Will this year’s El Niño bring a relief to the droughts in California?

4. Could this year’s El Nino turn into a La Nina, and what would that mean for us?

5. Where can we learn more?
