The climate of the Earth, like planetary climates in general, is broadly controlled by solar irradiation, planetary albedo and emissivity as well as its rotation rate and distribution of land (with its orography) and oceans. However, the majority of climate fluctuations that affect mankind are internal modes of the general circulation of the atmosphere and the oceans. Some of these modes, such as El Nin˜o-Southern Oscillation (ENSO), are quasi-regular and have some longer-term predictive skill;doi:10.3402/tellusb.v65i0.20189 fatcat:fm7uwab67jha5ma5jggxlkm4ge
