I've put together a series of chart comparisons below showing conditions during the normal year of and the El Nino year.

The El Niño was the strongest and most devastating of the century, perhaps the worst in . The term “El Nino” has become as much a part of our weather vocabulary as the words “super cell” or “derecho.” Today, we find it amazing to learn that when one of the strongest El Ninos of the Century brought damaging storms to California with heavy snow and flooding rain during the winter of no one was talking about El Nino.   However, hydrographic observations indicate that the "El Niiio" prediction of the model may be too high for the /83 El Niiio event. Measurements of currents, pressure and local winds during the /83 event by Huyer el al. () indicate that local upwelling favorable winds did not continue to force upwelling throughout El Nirio.

Abstract. Prior to the –83 El Niño, California sea lion (Zalophus californianus) populations in the California Channel Islands were recovering from low abundance levels that resulted from unregulated exploitation and indiscriminate killing which began in the s and continued through the late s (Bonnot ; Bartholomew ; Stewart et al., in press). A comparison of the –78 and –83 El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) events was made using monthly and seasonal values of sea surface temperature (SST) and station pressure in the tropics, sea level pressure (SLP) in North America and the North Atlantic, temperature in North America and precipitation in several key areas around the globe.
