                         blocking analysis in a 20-year climate simulation. The latter was 
                         performed by the Eta-CPTEC regional model at 50-km horizontal 
                         resolution. This version of the model includes a cut-cell scheme 
                         to represent topography and a fnite-volume vertical advection 
                         scheme for dynamic variables. The results indicate that foehn wind 
                         more frequently blows during winter and spring on the eastern 
                         slopes of the Andes, except to the south of 37 S where it blows 
                         at all seasons. Higher mountains of the Central Andes (27 S35 S) 
                         and the High Plateau (15 S27 S) result in blocked foehn events, 
                         with a weak adjustment to the geostrophic balance. On the Central 
                         Andes, rain and snow on mountain tops may also contribute to 
                         generate foehn wind on the eastern slopes. The results show that a 
                         low pressure develops to the east of the Central Andes, and also 
                         to the east of the High Plateau when foehn blows. Lower mountains 
                         in Patagonia (to the south of 37 S) result in more frequent 
                         non-blocked foehn event, with better adjustment to the geostrophic
