New satellite images of the eastern Pacific show that a fading El Nino has given way to an emerging La Nina.......La Nina typically results in below average rainfall, which allows the landscape to remain drier for longer periods of time, often resulting in more wildfires.........Scientists detect El Nino and La Nina by monitoring changes in sea surface temperatures in the central equatorial Pacific.
