This is hardly surprising, the massive movement of Pacific Ocean water to east in el Nino will likely diminish the exchange between Indian Ocean and ACC (Antarctic circumpolar current) at the other end of this massive double pool of water (Indian-Pacific ocean), letting the Indian ocean to warm up more than usual. What's possibly new with this study, the effect is somewhat quantisized in time and volume of heat.  Wouldn't be surprised though if someone finds an earlier ENSO study with less rigorous speculation of the same phenomenon.

Oops, wrong section -> Science

Gilbert Walker made the first tentative studies of the ENSO by looking for what was causing variations in the Indian Monsoon.
Take it for granted you are wrong.
Just try to work out what about and why.
