El Niño situation and prospects: 6 May 2002
The 6 May update of "El Niño situation and prospects" notes that uncertainty continues to prevail about a full-fledged El Niño developing this year: Pacific Sea Surface Temperatures (SST) remain above average, but the expected response of the atmosphere fails to develop.

El Niño situation and prospects: April 2002
April 2002. This report is a coupled atmospheric and oceanic phenomenon; predictions are based on several independent observations. To estimate future El Niño-Southern Oscillation (or ENSO) conditions, a common practice is to compare different reputable models that currently represent the state-of-the-art as far as dynamical and statistical ENSO prediction systems are concerned.

TEMS (Terrestrial Ecosystem Monitoring Sites database)
The New TEMS database is now on line. The Terrestrial Ecosystem Monitoring Sites database (TEMS) is an international directory of sites (T.Sites) and networks that carry out long-term terrestrial monitoring and research activities. Based on a core list of 110 variables, the database provides information on the "who, what and where" of long term terrestrial monitoring for use by both the scientific... more

Communicating agrometeorological information
This article addresses methods of communicating agrometeorological information, which consists of disseminating and evaluating information, providing examples of these processes. It raises and gives answers to some critical questions about communicating agrometeorological information in the future. A representative list of websites dealing with agrometeorology is given as an annex.

Environment - Geoinformation, monitoring and assessment
An El Niño Primer
El Niño triggers so much interest for three reasons: it can be modelled, thus forecast; its influence on climate is global; and there is a time lag between the phenomenon itself and many of its most important climatic consequences, therefore it can be used for forecasting climate. FAO interest in the phenomenon regards the impacts on agriculture - and consequently food security - of the extreme n... more
