This research proposes the study of extreme rainfall events (rainfall excess or lack of) in Região das Missões, Rio Grande do Sul based on studies of perception of the environment published by Oliveira (1971, 1977) and analysis of geographical climatology. This correlation between perception and climatology will give from the study of perception based on climate SARTORI (2000) which has the city Santo Antônio das Missões. Climate analysis will be done in the first moment with the rainfall data for the period 1992 to 2010 in annual scale, seasonal, monthly and daily for the region, and thereby establish the variation in rainfall in the study area and select episodes related to extreme rainfall . In the second time, taking advantage of the use of technical analysis rhythmic MONTEIRO (1971) and of rhythm of climate studies ZAVATTINI (2004) will investigate the genesis of these episodes of excess or lack of rain and thus to correlate these results with those obtained from the perception survey environmental and climate to be applied to rural and urban residents. The objective is to, with this study contribute to better understanding of the genesis of rhythm and linked to regional atmospheric rain and popular knowledge about the dynamics of the same.
