It would appear from our SST anomaly charts [satellite] that the warmer
than normal SSTs off the SA coast and extending along the Equator beyond
the Galapogos may be announcing a 1997 ENSO event...stay tuned.  Our Coral
Reef Bleaching Hotspot charts show SSTs along the Peru & Ecuador coasts to
be in excess of the maximum monthly SST climatology by levels by over +1
deg C!
