The geophysical events known as La Nina and El Nino are described as prolonged (five consecutive three month running means) below average surface water temperatures and prolonged above average surface  water temperatures in the Central Pacific Ocean, respectively. What was found was that after a long (severe) hot and dry El Nino and then a severe (but cold and wet) La Nina Ecuador experienced significantly more earthquakes and that the earthquakes were more powerful (higher Richters; larger damage areas) and that there was more erosion. We were initially somewhat surprised by the influence the June 15 1991 eruption of Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines exerted on the Central Pacific water surface temperatures. In particular, we had assumed that the typhoon near the Phillipines and the general trend of the ash and various gases being propelled westward would substantially weaken any influence on climate. has the technical paper as published in the journal of the Tsunami Society (The Science of Tsunami Hazards)
