What causes La Niña?*
Typically, a La Niña is preceded by a buildup of cooler-than-normal subsurface waters in the tropical Pacific. Eastward-moving atmospheric and oceanic waves help bring the cold water to the surface through a complex series of events still being studied. In time, the easterly trade winds strengthen, cold upwelling off Peru and Ecuador intensifies, and sea-surface temperatures (SSTs) drop below normal. During the 1988- 89 La Niña, SSTs fell to as much as 4 degrees C (7 degrees F) below normal. Both La Niña and El Niñq tend to peak during the Northern Hemisphere winter. http://www.elnino.noaa.gov/lanina_new_faq.html
hopefully helps a little. :D

For the southern occilation, I know that the pressure changes (on Darwin + Tahiti islands)?

Does anyone know on which island the pressure increases + on which island the pressure decreases?

Thnx. :)

Well I know that during El Nino pressure over Tahiti decreases.
