An important breakthrough in the development of chaotic dynamics appeared with the original
work of Lorenz [1]. With the aim of weather forecasting, he proposed his now wellknown
model as a low dimensional (three coupled ordinary differential equations) approximation
to an infinite dimensional model (a partial differential equation) of the dynamical
evolution of the atmosphere. Thus, the impact of Chaos theory or Nonlinear Dynamics on
Geophysical fluid dynamics, i.e., fluid mechanics as it is applied to atmospheric or oceanic
systems, has been important even since the first steps of this new field of Science. Briefly,
this Thesis will be concerned with some possibly useful applications of different mathematical,
computational and physical tools coming from Nonlinear Dynamics to specifically
motivated oceanic problems. Of course, this is a very general assertion which we will try
to clarify along this introduction.
