Comparison of UAH Anomalies During 1998 & 2010 El Nino – La Nina Oscillations

In this post, I show the UAH global temperature anomaly traces during the 1998 and 2010 El Nino – La Nina oscillations.

UAH_NINO34_cyclesThe 1998 UAH anomalies were higher in the peak El Nino period than the comparable 2010 El Nino peak period.  The anomaly drop off from the peaks have been comparable so far.  It will be interesting to see how the current La Nina progresses compared to the  12 month depressed anomaly period following the 1998 El Nino.

  1. The interesting point in this graph is that the 2010 anomalies approached the 1998 anomalies despite the much weaker nature of the ENSO event and is indicated by the ENSO index
