    ABSTRACT: The purpose of this study was to quantify and evaluate the effects of ENSO (El Nino Southern Oscillation) cold phases, throughout a composite of five intense La Nina episodes, on the atmospheric energetics of four distinct domains: 80°S - 5°N (zone 1), 50°S - 5°N (zone 2), 30°S - 5°N (zone 3), and 30°S - 30°N (zone 4). Data from NCEP reanalysis-II were used in the reckoning of atmospheric energies in the mentioned areas. In the synthesis, in zones 2, 3 and 4, the results showed that production of zonal terms of potential energy and kinetic energy decreased, mainly due to decreases of the meridional temperature gradient. As a result the conversions between them and between zonal kinetic energy and eddy kinetic energy were also reduced. This behavior, however, has not led to a significant intensification of baroclinic branch, except for zone 4. Regarding zone 1, it was observed the most atypical set. That is, KZ was intensified even with the reduction of all the sources that contribute directly to its supply.
