The effect of a periodic forcing on the mean ocean temperature - sea ice system is analyzed in a region of parameters in which this latter system gives rise to a homoclinic bifurcation. The possibility of complex, nonperiodic behavior as well as of long period solutions is established both analytically and by numerical simulations. The implications of the results in the glaciation problem are briefly discussed.
