The purpose of this pos-doctoral project is to investigate questions related to the broad issue of boundary layers and vortex dynamics, with a special concern with geophysical flows. More precisely, we are interested in certain fluid dynamical models, such as the Euler and Navier-Stokes equations with Coriolis-type forcing terms, the primitive system and the lake equations, specially the vanishing viscosity limit for these for these equations in the abscence of boundaries or with Navier-type boundary conditions.
