Keywords:neve, altitude, relevo, temperatura
AbstractSnowfall in Santa Catarina (SC) occurs from April to September with more often in July and August. Eventually, the snow cover is wider and reaches areas where it is not common. This paper aims to substantiate the snow coverage in SC on July 22-23 2013. This analysis is confronted with terrain of SC state. For this, it was used two maps of the Geographic Information System (GYS), showing the cities where had snow and the distribution of these cities relative to terrain. An additional analysis was made using observed and simulated air temperature fields for the period of snowfall. The snow was registered in 126 cities localized in all mesoregions of state. We have found that, with snow coverage of 64 %, including coastal regions, the event on July 22-23 2013 was the more intense and extensive snowfall registered until now.

Ethical Guidelines for Journal Publication
The Ciência e Natura journal is committed to ensuring ethics in publication and quality of articles.
Conformance to standards of ethical behavior is therefore expected of all parties involved: Authors, Editors, Reviewers, and the Publisher.
Authors: Authors should present an objective discussion of the significance of research work as well as sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the experiments.

The Authors should ensure that their work is entirely original works, and if the work and/or words of others have been used, this has been appropriately acknowledged. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. Authors should not submit articles describing essentially the same research to more than one journal. The corresponding Author should ensure that there is a full consensus of all Co-authors in approving the final version of the paper and its submission for publication.
Editors: Editors should evaluate manuscripts exclusively on the basis of their academic merit. An Editor must not use unpublished information in the editor's own research without the express written consent of the Author. Editors should take reasonable responsive measures when ethical complaints have been presented concerning a submitted manuscript or published paper.
Reviewers: Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Reviewers should be conducted objectively, and observations should be formulated clearly with supporting arguments, so that Authors can use them for improving the paper. Any selected Reviewer who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the Editor and excuse himself from the review process. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.
