Abstract [en]

In the 1980s and 1990s a local weather phenomenon called El Niño acquired global fame as a part of the Southern Oscillation, the umbrella term for oceanic and atmospheric temperature cycles in the eastern tropical Pacific region. Today, El Niño is the reference and indicator of global climate change. This paper explores satellite oceanography as a critical science and technology in the process of turning El Niño from a local explanandum to an explanans of global environmental change. Satellite high-resolution infrared sea surface temperature measurements established new knowledge about the oceanic-atmospheric climate cycle, spatially and temporally, since the 1990s. In the practice of outbalancing problematic “top skin” data by breadth of areal coverage a synoptic picture emerged. El Niño no longer signified the sporadic, elusive and disruptive event but the regular world climate engine. The phenomenon changed from an anomaly to a normality that also gave rise to probing climate predictability.
