AbstractThis research presents a profiles analysis of the zonal (u) and meridional (v) component of wind in a grid point near Belém city in Pará State at 12 UTC for both days with squall lines (SL) formation and days without them. The aim is to inquire the dynamics technical features of the profiles that distinguish days with and without SL, such as wind vertical shear and medium and low level jets (LLJ) present in the formation environment of SL that may contribute for the development and intensity of these systems. The results showed that the zonal component profile of the winds on days with SL formation presents deeper and a little more intense LLJ in lower levels than on days without SL. The meridional component profile showed the presence of negative maximum about 900 hPa and a positive maximum close to 800 hPa and that there is a tendency for these maximum to be higher on days with SL. Therefore, the profiles behaviors show that there is an interaction of the LLJ in the formation and development of these systems, and the change in the wind direction in the meridional component seems to contribute for the formation of squall lines.

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. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable. Review Articles should also be objective, comprehensive, and accurate accounts of the state of the art. 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.
