In “Impact of the 2015/2016 El Niño on the terrestrial carbon cycle constrained by bottom-up and top-down approaches,” published in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, Chen and his colleagues note this major event imposed extreme warming and dryness in the tropics and other sensitive regions causing a significant perturbation to the global carbon cycle.
