                         seasonal cycles around the Nuclear Power Plant in Angra dos Reis, 
                         RJ. The averages were taken for an hourly dataset in the period 
                         January 2005 and December 2012, based on four towers. Tower A 
                         measures air temperature and wind at three levels: 10, 60, and 100 
                         m. Towers B, C, and D measure only wind at 15 m. The diurnal cycle 
                         of static stability show stable conditions prevailing during most 
                         of the day. The static stability starts to reduce at about 6 and 7 
                         LT, whereas the most unstable conditions occur between 8 and 16 
                         LT. Winds are predominantly weak, with the most frequent intensity 
                         between 1.5 and 2 m/s. The minimum of 10-m winds occur when the 
                         sea breeze starts, at about 9 LT. The catabatic winds are a strong 
                         feature of the Tower A-10mwinds, and reveals strong vertical 
                         shear. The other towers do not show a clear minimum in the diurnal 
                         cycle of the wind, but the maximum occurs between 13 and 15 LT. 
                         Stronger wind and heavier precipitations were registered in 
                         autumn, MAM, which suggests the period of stronger storms.",
