                         in the hydroelectric reservoirs. During the winter time these cold 
                         fronts can reach southeast Brazilian coast each six days and 
                         summer each fourteen days in average. Most part of them reaches

                         the objective of this work is to analyze the influence of cold

                         the Itumbiara (Goias, Brazil) hydroelectric reservoir. To reach 
                         this objective a collection o meteorological (wind direction and 
                         intensity, short-wave radiation, air temperature, relative 
                         humidity, atmospheric pressure), water quality (pH, dissolved 
                         oxygen, conductivity, turbidity) and water temperature in four 
                         depths (5, 12, 20 and 40 m) data were used. These data were 
                         collected using an Integrated System for Environmental Monitoring 
                         called SIMA, in high frequency, 10 minutes. SIMA, developed in 
                         partnership between the Vale do Paraiba University and the 
                         National Institute of Space Research INPE), is a set of hardware 
                         and software designed for data acquisition and quasi real time 
                         monitoring of hydrological systems. SIMA utilizes Brazilian 
                         satellites to transmit the data. The stratification was assessed 
                         by non-dimensional parameter analysis. The Lake Number an 
                         indicator of the degree of stability and mixing in the reservoir 
                         was used in this analysis. It was possible to observe the 
                         developing of upwelling and downwelling in different shores of the 
                         reservoir during the cold fronts passage. These phenomena can 
                         modify the chemistry and biological processes in the water body.",
