Mickey Glantz brings La Niña to Center Stage

In 1999, the year after a record-breaking El Niño, NCAR’s Mickey Glantz organized the world’s first summit devoted to El Niño’s cool counterpart, La Niña. The conference drew a number of the nation's top researchers on La Niña and El Niño from universities and government agencies. It also brought La Niña into the popular lexicon, thanks to heavy media coverage.
