I need you to write a research article. We hear about El Nino and La Nina on the news and weather, but what are they and why are we concerned about them? Research El Nino and La Nina. Write a synopsis of this phenomona which answer the following questions. You must use at least three reference. I prefer you do not use wikipedia. The NOAA website is a great reference and National Geographic online has a nice article on El Nino/La Nina.
1. What causes this pattern and where do the conditions causing the pattern occur?
2. Describe both phases of the pattern (El Nino and La Nina). How long does each phase last? How was the pattern first recognized?
3. What are the consequences of each phase in Florida, the southeast United States and in the northern portion of the United States.
4. What are the economic consequences of these phases? Can we predict the onset of these phases? If we can, how can this benefit us economically?
