El Niño Events Currently Unpredictable (1 of 14)

Caption: Georgia Tech researchers work underwater to remove cores from living coral colonies growing on Fanning Island in the central Pacific. In the laboratory, these “modern” cores provide records of the most recent period of climate changes for comparison to the fossil coral climate reconstructions. This image relates to a paper that appeared in Jan. 4, 2013, issue of Science, published by AAAS. The paper, by Kim Cobb at Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Ga., and colleagues was titled, “Highly Variable El Niño–Southern Oscillation Throughout the Holocene.”
