PROGNOSIS OF THE WIND FOR ALAGOAS STATE USING WRF MODEL: STUDY OF THE UPDATE TOPOGRAPHY, LAND USE AND FRICTION VELOCITY
Keywords:Wind energy. Atmospheric model.
AbstractThis paper aims to make an evaluative study of the updates topography, land use and friction velocity performed in the atmospheric WRF model, and prove its efficiency in simulating the wind speed and direction patterns using measurements of anemometric station Maragogi/AL, during the period from August/2007 to July/2008, focusing to May/2008 showed low correlation coefficient indices. The changes resulted in improvements made in the correlation coefficient for the wind speed of 0.15 to 0.61, however it is not perceived improvement to the wind direction. Highlighted the fact that the topography and friction velocity were the variables that most influenced the simulations, however there was little difference between the default condition the update condition for land use. The average speed for the city of Maragogi/AL was 5,27m/s predominant direction of South East wind. Generally noticed an improvement in the simulations when implemented updates in the model.

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.
