THE ROLE OF EL NIÑO IN GEOLOGICAL EVENTS: EARTHQUAKES AND VOLCANOES
El Niño is a weather phenomenon that occurs in the Pacific Ocean.
It causes changes in ocean temperatures and atmospheric pressure.
These changes can lead to geological events such as earthquakes and volcanoes.
El Niño can trigger earthquakes by changing the stress on tectonic plates.
It can also cause volcanic eruptions by increasing the amount of magma in the Earth's crust.
El Niño can also affect the frequency and intensity of these events.
Understanding the role of El Niño in geological events is important for predicting and preparing for natural disasters.
