Monthly Mean SST’s & Climatologies
These are the map sets that you will want to copy. I suggest enlarging them to fit on an 11”x 17” sheet. There are sets from January 1997 through February 1998. I recommend having students work in groups of two or more.
The 1997-98 El-Niño event was initially detected in April 1997. Before then, ocean SST conditions were near normal.
