Originally the term El Niño applied to an annual weak warm ocean current that ran southwards along the coast of Peru and Ecuador at about Christmas time. [7] However, over time the term has evolved and now refers to the warm and negative phase of the El Niño Southern Oscillation and is the warming of the ocean surface or above-average sea surface temperatures in either the central and eastern tropical Pacific Ocean. [8] [9] This warming causes a shift in the atmospheric circulation with rainfall becoming reduced over Indonesia and Australia, while rainfall and tropical cyclone formation increases over the tropical Pacific Ocean. [10] The low-level surface trade winds, which normally blow from east to west along the equator, either weaken or start blowing from the other direction. [9]

The popular English name jellyfish has been in use since 1796. [4] It has traditionally also been applied to other animals sharing a superficial resemblance, for example ctenophores (members from another phylum of common, gelatinous and generally transparent or translucent, free-swimming planktonic carnivores now known as comb jellies ) were included as "jellyfishes". [5] Even some scientists include the phylum ctenophora when they are referring to jellyfish. [6] Other scientists prefer to use the more all-encompassing term gelatinous zooplankton , when referring to these, together with other soft-bodied animals in the water column. [7]
