For instance, spatial patterns of model predicted warming and observed warming are compared to known spatial patterns of natural variability to estimate the probability that the observed pattern could have arisen by chance. See Chapter 7 for further discussion. The introduction of Philander (1990) provides a marvellous discussion of some historical descriptions of El Niño. This includes letters describing the effects of the El Niño of 1891 on Peru, and the documenting, by the President of the Lima Geographical Society, of the term El Niño as used by sailors of Paita, Peru.
