El Niño was originally recognized by fisherman off the coast of South
America as the appearance of unusually warm water in the Pacific ocean,
occurring near the beginning of the year. El Niño means The Little One
in Spanish. This name was used for the tendency of the phenomenon to arrive
around Christmas. There has been a confusing range of uses for the terms El Niño,
La Niña and ENSO by both the scientific community and the general public, which
is clarified in this web page on definitions
of the terms ENSO, Southern Oscillation Index, El Nino and La Nina.
