This book assembles a stellar group of contributors to provide an in-depth perspective on a nationally high visibility and complex climate event: El Ni�o 1997-1998. It presents what happened in the United States where El Ni�o became a household word and a "climate event of the century" to scientists. The book is a "snapshot" of events during a 14-month period starting when El Ni�o developed in the spring of 1997 and ending by early summer 1998. Its particular focus is on information that appeared in the media and on the Internet -- two major sources, correct or not, during the event.
