Title: Impact of ENSO on River Flows in Guyana

Published in: Water Resources Management
Abstract: The El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) phenomenon is a natural part of the global climate system resulting from the interactions between large-scale ocean atmospheric circulation processes in the equatorial Pacific and Indian Oceans. In Guyana, for all the adverse weather and extreme hydrological events, the blame goes to El Niño or La Niña. This paper investigates the relationship between ENSO and three Guyanese river flows; the Demarara, Essequibo and Mazaruni. This work sheds some light on the effects of this phenomenon on these river flows which may be useful for the adaptation policies dealing with the impacts of ENSO. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht.
