Resumo

Abstract: Evaluated the climatic characterization of region of Sinop-MT, through the database of daily of the conventional meteorological station "Gleba Celeste" (12 12'S and 56 30'W, at an altitude of 415m), the period 07/1972 to 07/2010. Climatic water balance by region shows annual rainfall of 1974.47 mm and annual reference evapotranspiration (ETo) obtained by the method of Thornthwaite equal to 1327.29 mm, with oscillations of deficiencies and excess water dependent water holding capacity of the soil. The region presents the types and climatic Aw and B2wA'a' for Kpens and Thornthwaites climatic classification method, with well-defined seasons: rainy (October to April) and dry (May to September).

Keywords: time series climatic, air temperature, evapotranspiration
