The ocean has a central role in the regulation of the earth´s climate and biogeochemical cycles. Global warmin associated to the increase in concentration of greenhouse gases has caused relevant changes in the circulation of materials and energy in the ocean, apart from an increase in the sea level, which is specially relevant due to the fact that coastal areas host 25% of the world´s population
