Two Sees that don't meet

Gulf of Alaska has two oceans that meet but do not mix

The Gulf of Alaska has two oceans that meet but do not mix. Ridiculous, incredible and simply mind-blowing!!!
These two bodies of water were merging in the middle of The Gulf of Alaska and there was a foam developing only at their junction. It is a result of the melting glaciers being composed of fresh water and the ocean has a higher percentage of salt causing the two ocean bodies of water to have different densities and therefore makes it more difficult to mix.

Gulf of Alaska

This picture of two oceans meeting, but not mixing was caught by a photographer on Alaskan Cruise and shared it on Flickr which went viral, spreading on many other social networking platforms. You can find few other similar pictures caught by the same photographer in reference section.

    This has to be the most interesting thing on this site so far. If this photo is real, it is absolutely amazing. Thank you so much for this information. I bookmarked this as it’s so amazing.

  • Makcit Rindap

    This is beautiful. Saw it on twitter and just had to investigate. I’m in awe.

    • http://www.ridiculousfacts.com/ Jordan

      That makes two of us. It’s just absolutely stunning!

  • chazza

    what are the 2 oceans called

    • Sakura

      I believe its the Arctic and Pacific meeting but I’m not 100% sure.

      • AC

        Really? There is a little place called Alaska between those two oceans. Basic geography.

        • maxyboy

          yes, this is an amazing picture

    • maxyboy

      Baltic and dont know the other name, sorry guys

  • Wood

    It’s not to Oceans! What happens is the Iron and sediments from melting summer Glaciers and the Copper River funnel into the Gulf of Alaska causing the color difference, it’s not like that in the winter only a few months and it does mix it just takes time and the current! Don’t believe every thing on the Net! How can there be two Oceans in the Gulf of Alaska? It’s just a Coastal arm of the Pacific! Sorry to disappoint as the photo is cool.

    • Wood

      Sorry for the spelling damn iPhone auto correct

    • hessabg

      Wowwww!!!!!

    • bunmi

      U are wrong Mr,basically because it was mentioned in the Quran makes ur people turn their fallacy thinking to another side,,pls go there and get the two water and do a research urself than been fed with lies and hatred on internet….Simple

      • dalepro59

        So you’re saying that muslims were living up at the Gulf of Alaska 1400 years ago?

        • sirood

          no but thats whats amazing about it. the Quran spoke of it 1400 years before it was even known.

          • dalepro59

            The Quran is toilet paper. You rip out the pages and wipe them deep in your backdoor….sliding all that poop onto it….

          • Mahsan

            dalepro you will burn in Hell

          • dalepro59

            No, I believe its you Mahsan who will burn in hell…all without getting any virgins……They’ll let the gay devils take turns with you first though….You’ll get a solid pummeling….Then into the fire you go bro! Yippee for you!!! :)

          • Deo Duce

            Regardless of what you think of the Quran, that is between you and yourself. The fact you insult someone else, that in itself shows the lack of respect you have, and that is ok, im sure you were brought up well.

            The fact remains it was quoted in the Quran 1400 years ago, regardless of whether or not it is toilet paper, it’s still in there.

            Good luck champ.

          • priya sharma

    • max

      Go away mr wood

  • Bello Abdulaziz

    This is no new knowledge to us the Muslims, this phenomena has been mention in the holy QURAN 1434 years ago “” We have let loose two seas, the salt and bitter and fresh and sweet simultaneously, between them is a barrier in which they do not transgress””. This is not the places this happens, PLEASE study the QURAN with an OPEN HEART to find out more of these wonders…

    • bunmi

      Don’t seem to get ur wordings,,pls can u mail me on xxx_olu101@yahoo.com….and the question is where does this now happened if it is not the gulf of alaska

    • dalepro59

      So what you’re saying that muslims were living up at the Gulf of Alaska 1400 years ago?

      • local_domain

        it means, it is already stated in Holy Al-Quran since the existence of it 1400 years ago. My old man use to told me this story.. zzz not a new info.. read more dude.. it’s a great way to gain knowledge..

  • Mark

    Thank you for
    great photo. It is amazing to see great phenomena of the nature. But to all
    open minded people that believe in Quran, want to help you to see some of the
    facts that you don’t want to understand or simply do not know. First of all, we
    all have freedom to study, understand, and acknowledge different point of views
    no matter were they are coming from. And
    as intelligent beings, we are capable to conclusion of information that is
    presented in front of us. Information must be true and factually correct. Some
    facts about these phenomena: We see these
    proses of mixing salty and fresh water all over the world. Every time fresh
    water from river is interring in to ocean we have a merger point that create a murky
    water of mixing salt contents. At smaller
    river the line of mixing is small and sometimes hard to see or it is even in
    the river before the ocean. At bigger
    river it is easier to see, the point when fresh water is merging with salt
    water. This process of merging is easier to see in colder water and harder to
    see at wormer water. At wormer climate you may not notice difference on the surface
    of the water but, if you dive below water line you will clearly see murky area
    of the mixing salt and fresh water content. At colder climate sometimes it is easier
    to see do to visible color difference and bigger area of murky mix point. Sometimes Foam is formed do to presents of elevated
    chemical content in water such as Iron and sediments, usually brought down from
    mountains or river bed. But it is always mixing at different rates but eventually
    fresh water becomes salty and there is no barrier created that would prevent it
    from mixing. Now, let’s study geography.
    Please open maps of the world as we know it. There is a point in the northern hemisphere of
    our planet where North Pacific Ocean meets with Artic Ocean. More accurately:
    Chukchi Sea meets with Bearing Sea at Bering
    Strait. The distance of the meeting of two great oceans is very small,
    only 88.5 kilometers. Bering Strait
    is separating two continents of the land mass: North America and Asia. The tip
    of the North America is called Alaska. Alaska is a 49th state of USA. The tip
    of the Asia continent is Siberia. Siberia is a region of Russia. Unfortunately
    at Bearing strait we do not see any barrier between two oceans, water is very rough
    due to strong currents and high wind but, water can freely flow from one ocean
    to the other. It would be cool but it is not there. Let’s get back to the
    picture. Picture and phenomenon is observed approximately 1500km from Bearing
    strait and big land mass is separating it, It called Alaska. The pictures have
    been taken in Golf of Alaska at Copper River funnel and it is not meeting of two oceans
    as believed by some. Every summer we see
    melting of the Alaska glaciers. At wormer summers more and in colder summers less. Melting ice:
    as fresh water flowing down the streams forming rivers. When these rivers meet North Pacific Ocean at
    Cooper River Funnel, it creates this beautiful spectacle only at some summer
    months. Native people (Chukchi) have
    traveled and lived on these lands for thousands of years. Have some stores and
    writings dated up to two thousand years of similar occurrences all over the coastal
    areas when fresh water from melting ice meet ocean. I am
    very sorry to say to all Muslims that this is not a place that is described in
    Quran by Muhammad. May be there is such place but this is not it. If you are
    Muslim and truly have as you say OPEN HART and MIND to knowledge and wonders, if
    you do not have predigest. If this is true: then read books that is much older than Quran.
    Some of them you could find in book
    named Bible. If your hart and mind is open you will see that most of the
    stories and ideas that you find in Quran are in Bible especially in first part
    of it (Old Testament or Torah). Some of those stores have been written more than
    two thousand years before Quran was. And if your heart and mind is open you
    will find that Quran is bad copy of those books with many mistakes and discrepancies
    from originals.

    • dalepro59

      That what I was saying…is that are we to believe that muslims were living in Alaska 1400 years ago?? lol…

      • Raptor

        Bro, you do know that Islam is a universal religion and is not entitled to only arabs right? Quran is by God and God knows all so it does make sense if the Quran mentions anything in any part of the world

        • dalepro59

          Oh my God!! Thank you for reminding me about the religion of peace and love where suicide bombers in the middle east are killing people and the men over there are stoning women because they didn;t wear their blankets and fathers are throwing acid on their daughters because one of you men raped her.

          Besides the FACT there were no muslims in Alaska 1300 years ago…..SMH…

          • huuuuseyin

            Well they aren’t muslim my friend :) they are just people looking like a muslim so that they can win people like you thinking that the islam is bad you better think about this first and the biggest criminals are those jews who pay people to do this kind of shit.

          • dalepro59

            I do think about it and understand what is going on. I know there are plenty of great muslims out there. I understand how the system works and who is manipulating what…for the most part anyway….

          • Flora Quinera

            Im glad that you are open minded, I am a muslim myself and I appreciate that you can see past the manipulating hateful media, thank you.
            Also, about your point about Muslims living in Alaska 1300 years ago, well that is not the point of the argument as thats true – there weren’t muslims there at the time, what muslims are trying to convery is that God wrote those books, the Bible, Quran, Torah etc. and they all include sightings that we see today and are amazed by.

      • Lisa hill

        Muslims live every where, where they were living in Alaska 1400 years ago is not relevant to this story since the quran wasn’t written by a Muslim living in Alaska who witnessed these to bodies of water not colliding. The words of the Quran are from Allah the most knowledgeable

    • Diyar

      Thanks for this great wealth of information, I’ll still check on this subject from other sources though.
      Sorry but your spelling is terrible. I thought you might not be English.

    • Deo Duce

      If you read the Quran in full with an unbiased view, you would be reluctant to write such a comment because you would see your points are not valid.

    • KJ

      Dear sir, the Bible, Torah and the Quran have descended from the same Supreme Being so naturally what you find in the Quran are also mentioned in the other books. They corroborate each rather than contradict each other. The only difference is that both the Bible and the Torah have changed over the years whereas Quran is still exactly the same. I would be grateful if you can kindly point out the discrepancies and mistakes in the Quran that you have mentioned. As an unbiased muslim I would like to be enlightened to these. Thank you.

    He is the one who has set free the two kinds of water, one sweet and palatable, and the other salty and bitter. And He has made between them a barrier and a forbidding partition. (Quran, 25:53)

    Written over 1400 years ago. dalepro59 asked if there was living muslims at the Gulf of Alaska 1400 years ago. Answer: NO! and that is why this words can’t be from a human being, rather it is God’s words.
