Resumen: [EN] Stommel has been the most important physicist oceanographer of the second half of the XX century. Builder, to a great extent, of the present Dynamical Oceanography. He contributed to the transformation of the Oceanography from a sort of appendix of the studies of the Atmosphere to a new specialty of Geophysics. After graduating in Astronomy in Yale in 1942 he started his research participating in the WWII effort, collaborating together with many other future oceanographers, in support of the USA Navy. Research that was carried out in the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI). Between 1959 and 1978 he was professor of oceanography in Harvard U. first, and later in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, returning to WHOI where he stayed until his death. Stommel established important and fundamental theories on the ocean global circulation and studied many other oceanographic phenomena. This theoretical activity he combined with not a less important observational one. He received many awards and hhonors, including the Craadford prize, equivalent to the Nobel in Geosciences.
