Evolução Temporal da Precipitação e Atividade Elétrica de uma Tempestade com Ocorrência de Tempo Severo
Keywords:Ozone. Turbulence. Rainforest. Amazon. Forest canopies.
Ozone plays a crucial role in the chemistry of the tropical atmospheric boundary layer. In the rainforest, ozone sources and sinks are complex due to numerous chemical reactions and surface deposition. Turbulent transport controls the vertical distribution of ozone. A field study in the Amazonia, near Manaus, Brazil during 2014 shows different shapes of ozone profiles as a response to changes in air turbulence during night-to-day and day-to-night transitions. During the night-to-day transition following sunrise ozone levels increase within the canopy due to photochemical production and increased vertical mixing. The vertical transport of ozone to the lower layers of the canopy is enhanced after the thermal inversion in the canopy disappears. At night, the ozone deposition to the ground and the foliage in the lower canopy is strong. After midnight, the lower canopy is devoid of ozone. Relatively high gradients of ozone levels within the forest during the nighttime also result from the decoupling between the in- and above-canopy environment that limits the forest-atmosphere ozone exchange. Processes responsible for the vertical distribution ozone are necessary to estimate the oxidation of the plant-emitted gases whose reaction products are aerosol precursors.

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.
