This work contains the results of studies of the statistical structure of the temperature fields of air in the middle troposphere in the western sector of the Southern Hemisphere. It was showed the features of temporal variability of air temperature in the atmosphere. An attempt is made to identify the response of the temperature field in the processes of the El Niño-Southern Oscillation. Researches are carried out by the methods of multivariate statistical analysis and the theory of stochastic processes.
