Where 2 Oceans Meet And Do Not Mix, Unbelivable Right? - Religion - Nigeria
I grew up in Khartoum where the White Nile and the Blue Nile meet, and . In this case density difference between fresh river water and salty. The contrast is striking as the clear Thompson River water joins with the muddy Fraser. Gulf of Alaska: where two oceans meet, but never mix! is a result of the . River waters simply meeting is one thing, but when those bodies of water display distinguishing colors from one other without mixing, it can create silt, vegetation or chemicals the water caries, which clearly contrast the river they join into. But.
The Two Rivers (must see) | Life in Kuwait and Beyond
The two rivers meet in Canyonlands National Park in Utah. It carries less sediment than the Ohio River, giving it a greener tinge. The Ohio River is the largest tributary of the Mississippi and contains high levels of sediment, turning it a brown color.
They are both major rivers of Northern India, and the Alaknanda travels miles through the Alaknanda Valley before meeting the dam filled and turbulent Bhagirathi River in Deyprayag. Despite its name, the Rio Negro is not technically black, but does harbor a very dark color. When it meets the Rio Solimoes, which is the name given to the upper stretches of the Amazon River in Brazil, the two rivers meet side by side without mixing.
There certainly is a stark contrast between the deep colored Rio Negro and the sandy hued Amazon River. It supports plenty of fish life and is distinguished be clear colored water, much cleaner than the Yangtze River of which it feeds into.
Rivers That Meet But Do Not Mix
The Yangtze River is the longest river in Asia and is very culturally and historically important to the country. Unfortunately, its suffered industrial pollution in recent years, which is what gives it its brown color.
The Rhine River, beginning its course in the Swiss Alps, flows throughout a good portion of Europe and has a history of being used for navigation and defense. It starts in Germany and eventually empties out into the Black Sea.
That original photo, however, originates from a research cruise of oceanographers studying the role that iron plays in the Gulf of Alaska, and how that iron reaches certain areas in the northern Pacific.
In fact, he was the one who snapped the pic. He said the purpose of the cruise was to examine how huge eddies -- slow moving currents -- ranging into the hundreds of kilometers in diameter, swirl out from the Alaska coast into the Gulf of Alaska.
It empties out east of Prince William Sound, carrying with it all that heavy clay and sediment. And with that sediment comes iron. This is one of the primary methods that iron -- found in the clay and sediment of the glacial runoff -- is transported to iron-deprived regions in the middle of the Gulf of Alaska.
As for that specific photo, Bruland said that it shows the plume of water pouring out from one of these sediment-rich rivers and meeting with the general ocean water. Such borders are never static, he added, as they move around and disappear altogether, depending on the level of sediment and the whims of the water.
After all, in this Internet age, nothing spreads faster than misinformation. I've never been to Ikogosi but friend went there for easter, didnt have d chance then but maybe some other times.

I've heard a lot about it Re: I bet the guys that wrote the "holy" parts must have seen this sort of phenomenon occur somewhere before and they like you just have done attribute it to a "god" I've taken the liberty to highlight the important bits of this article, and i hope it will enlighten you a little http: Maybe we should shut down all hospitals, close all schools, and ask 'GOD' to take care of the human race. Why can't you just accept you learnt something new and stop being an a55hole about it?
U're going to run ur mouth too I'm aite mate, How you been yourself?. Was just passing through and saw that annoying post the OP opened up. He even still has the cheek to defend the nonsense he posted.
