Shift in El Niño observed

This article was originally published in Foodnews

US scientists have discovered that El Niño weather events, which raise sea temperatures and affect migratory fish stocks, are becoming stronger in the Central Pacific. A study by NASA and the NOAA has found that the 2009-10 El Niño in the region was the strongest since records began in 1982, and that the intensity has almost doubled during that time. This could indicate that global warming is shifting the centre of El Niño action from the eastern to the central Pacific, said NOAA's Michael McPhaden.
