Title: 
La Nina creates shift in pacific rainfall patterns

Description: 
  • In this image, daily precipitation has been averaged over the course of a year. On the left, the data is from January 1 - December 31, 1999, during a very intense La Niña. On the right, the data is from January 1 - December 31, 1993, during a "normal" year when neither La Niña nor El Niño were present. Areas of highest daily rainfall are situated directly over the Coral Sea during the normal year, but move far more westward during La Niña. This offset places some of the heaviest rains over the islands of the Pacific and Indian Ocean Basins, areas which are usually spared from the most intense rains during normal years
