What are the El Niño and La Niña weather phenomena?

Question by SpaceBoy360°: What are the El Niño and La Niña weather phenomena?
Whenever I try to post this question in the weather section, it is being reported and deleted no matter how many times I try this… and then 5 hours later my appeals are being granted but I get no answers.

Could you please tell me, briefly, what are they and how they are formed? I just want to get the intuition behind these weather phenomena.

Thanks.
I would also like to know what do they have to do with the level of sea surface?

El Nino is formed when an unusual amount of warm water is built up in the middle of the pacific ocean and shifts over to south America.

El Nino is Spanish for The Nino
