Abstract
Although the relationship between ENSO events and oceanographic and meteorological conditions of Southwestern Colombia is well-known, very little work has been done to assess the related socio-economic impacts. This is the first effort made to determine the effect of such events on local climate and the impact of this variability on oil palm tree (<I>Elaeis guineensis</I>) production in the Tumaco municipality, which is located on Colombia&apos;s Pacific coast. First, we studied the correlation between sea surface temperature anomalies (SSTA) in the various El Ni&#241;o regions and those observed off Tumaco. Next, we scrutinized the ENSO impact on regional clima...
