Abstract: This review shows dynamics associated with Atlantic Ninos. Three mechanisms are discussed in this review. These include Bjerknes feedback (SST & westerly wind interactions), tropospheric temperature mechanism (Atmospheric thermodynamics), and ocean dynamics (upwelling Kelvin wave -> downwelling Rossby wave -> downwelling Kelvin wave). The relationship between 1997/98 El Nino and the following summer Atlantic Nino has been particularly discussed.
