Pacific ENSO Update

As of July 1st 2019, The Pacific ENSO Update is no longer being produced due to budgeting and personnel changes during PEAC's transition to the National Weather Service. Past Pacific ENSO Updates will remain as archive data for reference.

The Pacific ENSO Update was a bulletin of the Pacific El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) Applications Climate Service, providing information on climate variability related to the ENSO climate cycle for the U.S.-Affiliated Pacific Islands (USAPI). This newsletter was intended to supply information for the benefit of those involved in such climate-sensitive sectors as civil defense, resource management, and developmental planning in the various jurisdictions of the USAPI. The issues were published quarterly, with supplemental special editions on important changes in ENSO conditions as may be required from time to time.

Issues of the Pacific ENSO Update are presented in a new HTML format to conform with National Weather Service standards.
