La Niña

A coupled ocean-atmosphere phenomenon that is the counterpart of El Niño

La Niña is an oceanic and atmospheric phenomenon that is the colder counterpart of El Niño, as part of the broader El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) climate pattern. The name La Niña originates from Spanish for "the little girl", by analogy to El Niño, meaning "the little boy". In the past, it was also called an anti-El Niño and El Viejo, meaning "the old man".
