El Nino events are discussed, and three different types of model developed to predict the onset of an event are examined. These are statistical models, models of ocean behaviour based on observed winds, and models predicting the interaction of ocean and atmosphere. The inability to predict with confidence an El Nino event points to the need to improve all the models. -L.Wright
