             abstract = "Southeastern Brazil is a highly industrialized and populated 
                         region which largely contributes to the country's economy. Extreme 
                         precipitation over this region can cause floods and landslides 
                         occurrences or lack of precipitation that can affect many sectors 
                         of economy. The objective of this work is to identify atmospheric 
                         characteristics associated with austral summer extreme 
                         precipitation over part of Southeastern Brazil. The atmospheric 
                         characteristics obtained from wet and dry composites suggest that 
                         extreme precipitation was associated with anomalous circulation 
                         over the region, forced by a PSA-like wavetrain intensified by the
