Analysis of upwelling changes in the eastern equatorial Pacific during el ni?o southern oscillation

The ocean reanalysis Simple Ocean Data Assimilation (SODA) 2.2.4 is used to explore the changes in upwelling from normal conditions to either El Ni?o or La Ni?a conditions. Physical and thermodynamic variables from the reanalysis are used to explore the structure and behaviour of El Ni?o Southern Os...
