INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS

 

Scope

The RBMET is edited and published by the Brazilian Meteorological Society and it is the main way to disseminate the researches in progress of the Meteorological Community. Typically these research results are from studies in meteorology and its sub-areas such as climatology, synoptic, hydrometeorology, remote sensing of the atmosphere, atmospheric and climatic modeling. Articles from international and Latin American community researchers are also published. In RBMET there is also space for article of scientific reviews, in which is presented the state of art in atmospheric sciences. All the articles are revised by specialized professionals ("peer review process") and kept in anonymity.

The target public is the scientific community of meteorologists from Brazil and Latin American countries such as Argentina, Chile, Peru, Cuba and Mexico. This public is typically associated with private and public university, and also with research and operational institutions such as INMET (National Institute of Meteorology), CPTEC/INPE (Center for Weather Forecast and Climatic Studies of the National Institute of Space Research), SIMEPAR (Meteorological System of the Paraná), FUNCEME (Meteorological Foundation of Ceará) and others.

Graduate and under graduate students from Brazilian universities are a potential public of RBMET. Other researchers from related areas such as agro-meteorologists, hydrologists and engineers can also have benefits.
