In this paper, the variability of the Asian summer monsoon circulation during the ENSO period is diagnostically analyzed. Evidence suggests that every member of the Asian summer monsoon system change in varying degrees, even, oppositely, during El Nino and La Nina events. Then, the basis of the summer rainfall in east China analyzed using EOF, both region and extent of impact of the eastern tropical Pacific SSTA on the summer rainfall in East China are analyzed. This impact is closely related with development phase of the ENSO cycle, being most notable in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze and south of China.
