  1. 1. ENSO teleconnections - Analysis of time lag between tropical Pacific sea surface temperature and climate and vegetation anomalies

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Jiri Navrátil; [2020]
    Keywords : Physical Geography and Ecosystem Analysis; ENSO; teleconnections; climate; NDVI; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) affects weather and climate in regions spread all around the Earth via teleconnections. While quite a lot of research has been done on recognizing what regions are affected by these and what is the sign of the associated temperature, rainfall and vegetation anomalies, not that much attention has been paid to the timing of the impacts with respect to the ENSO state.
