A 3D look at El Niño


Today’s Video of the Day comes thanks to NASA Goddard and features a 3D look at the 2015-2016 El Niño event.

El Niño takes place when the equatorial region in the Pacific Ocean is warmer than usual. These 3D illustrations demonstrate the changes in water temperature and currents during the 2015-2016 El Niño event.
