Meaning of Phenomenon of the child

What is Phenomenon of the child:

El Niño phenomenon, or simply El Niño, is a meteorological, oceanic and atmospheric event, caused by the change in the movement of marine currents defined as part of a cycle called the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO).

The phenomenon of El Niño causes an abnormal increase in sea temperatures due to the change in the marine currents of the Pacific Ocean.

The current “El Niño” is directed from the western tropical Pacific Ocean (generally originating in the Philippines and Indonesia) towards the coasts of the intertropical zone of the American continent creating the Phenomenon of the Child that affects the following regions:

  • Southern United States
  • Northern Mexico
  • Central America
  • Colombia
  • Venezuela
  • Guyana
  • Suriname
  • French Guyana
  • North of Brazil
  • The coast of Ecuador
  • Northern Peru

Causes and consequences of the Child Phenomenon

The phenomenon of the child occurs as part of an irregular cycle that the International Institute for Climate Research predicts a recurrence from every 2 to every 7 years.

The El Niño phenomenon occurs when the warm current of the eastern Pacific Ocean changes its usual movement and moves towards the shores of the equator on the American continent.

The phenomenon of El Niño causes consequences in both the Atlantic and the Pacific zones of the affected intertropical zone, extreme and unusual seasonal meteorological changes. In the American continent an intensification of the climatic characteristics of each region can be observed.

The areas that suffer the highest humidity, intensified with incessant rains, in the rainy season are:

  • the western shores of the southern United States,
  • North of mexico,
  • Ecuador,
  • northern Peru.

The regions that become more arid in their dry season are generally concentrated in the following regions:

  • Colombia,
  • Venezuela,
  • Guyana,
  • Suriname,
  • French Guyana,
  • northern Brazil.
