This work intends to monitor the behavior of the temperature at different depths in a cell consisting of waste with little time available, the landfill of Rio Claro - SP. The data will be compared with the results obtained in a cell already closed waste currently monitored by undergraduate research project (Case No. 2011/20233-4 FAPESP). It is intended to verify which the temperature behavior from the start of the landfill waste disposal. The measurements are performed frequently fifteen days in cell located in front of operation.
