El Niño and Magellan

The news about anthropologists Scott M. Fitzpatrick and Richard Callaghan's upcoming paper on the possible influence of the El Niño phenomenon on Magellan's route has been covered in many sources, but the Discovery Channel's article is worth a read. Not only do they illustrate the article with a beautiful 16th century map, but go to the trouble to create links to some excellent sites, such as Fordham's article on the voyage in their Modern History SourceBook.
