The El Niño Southern Oscillation is a recurring climate event in the tropical Pacific Ocean with a period of between 2 and 7 years. It is a coupled phenomenon of sea surface temperatures and zonal wind anomalies in the equatorial Pacific. ENSO has a far-reaching effect and leads to extensive rainfall and floods or anomalous droughts in certain regions of the globe, thus affecting local agriculture.Therefore, its prediction is important and it is the subject of extensive research.
