An Apology From Marissa Mayer

I have an apology from Marissa Mayer that I can’t log in automatically on Flickr. I apologized her so I can use many things to bypass this error:

Aaah! At least 31 years since Sally Ride, Apple Lisa, intense El Nino, Lotus 1-2-3, and Hurricane Alicia! That’s it, Mann.

Watts Up With That?

In the preceding post, we looked at the evolution of the weekly sea surface temperature anomalies in two regions of the equatorial Pacific (NINO3.4 and NINO1+2), comparing the data so far in 2014 to those of the strong 1982/83 and 1997/98 El Niño events. (See 2014/15 El Niño – Part 3 – Early Evolution – Comparison with 1982/83 & 1997/98 El Niño Events.) We presented them because there are a lot of comparisons of this El Niño to those strong El Niños.

In this post, using the same two regions, we’ll compare the evolution of the sea surface temperature anomalies this year to the rest of the satellite-era El Niño events. And we’ll also compare this year to the average, because someone was bound to ask.

This post serves solely as a reference. What it illustrates very well is that there is a tremendous amount of diversity in the…
