The Eugene Rasmusson Symposium


A quick tour of ENSO impacts research from the 1980s to the present

Chester F. Ropelewski, International Research Institute for Climate Prediction, Columbia University, Palisades, NY

The presentation will very briefly review early investigations of the shifts in global precipitation patterns associated with the El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and in the spirit of this Symposium reflect on Gene Rasmusson's influence on ENSO impact studies of the early 1980s and later. The presentation will touch on the evolution in the analysis tools, data, and our understanding and interpretation of ENSO-related precipitation anomalies. Some concluding remarks will discuss studies that aim to bring the ‘impacts” work beyond investigation of seasonal and monthly means towards characterizing the influence of ENSO on statistics of daily weather within seasons.wrf recording  Recorded presentation
