Description Summer rainfall data of sixteen meteorological stations from Southern Pakistan (Sindh and Balochistan) has been analyzed over a period of fifty years (1951-2000) to see the El-Nino impact on summer monsoon in Southern Pakistan. It is shown that the summer rainfall is reduces mostly in Southern parts of Pakistan at the time of warming at eastern and central Pacific Ocean. As well; the results lead to the idea that the all El-Niño events are not essentially correlated with the poor monsoon in southern parts of Pakistan. The research results show that the relationship among El-Niño, summer monsoon and drought in this region is uncertain.
