                         1996 to 1999 and the results are used to show the seasonal and 
                         interannual variability of convective activity over South America. 
                         The mean field of each season during the four years show the 
                         contrasts among the seasons. Concerning the interannual 
                         variability of the spring season, there are differences related to 
                         the organization of convection from the Amazonia region and 
                         Southeast Brazil. Specific analyses in several areas of South 
                         America show that there is not high variability with respect to 
                         the intensity of mean convective activity from year to year, but 
                         there is high interannual variation in number of days with strong 
                         activity in all the analyzed areas.",
