Has anyone done or seen studies to correlate Mid Ocean Ridge activities with El Nino/ La Nina phenomena in the Pacific Ocean?  I could not find anything but curious if there was any relation.

I doubt if there is, but it could play a small role in some cases I suppose. El Nino and La Nina are almost entirely driven by atmospheric anomalies and oceanic thermocline.
