Abstract

The occurrence of "El Niño" in relation to solar activity is studied. We find that these events are correlated with local maxima of visible aurorae and with periods of small negative sunspot gradients and low sunspot number. The apparent correlation of "Niños" with anomalous solar activity led us to predict an event at the end of 1989, which in fact occurred.
