In this picture taken by a photographer Kent Smith, fresh water from melting glaciers is meeting with the ocean. Ocean water has a higher percentage of salt and therefore has a different density making it difficult for the two bodies of water to mix. I thought this was the most unusual thing I saw on the Alaskan cruise in the water. These two bodies of water were merging in the middle of the Alaskan gulf and there was a foam developing only at their junction."Kent smith"
Mythbusting 'the place where two oceans meet' in the Gulf of Alaska - A picture from the Gulf of Alaska that has been making the rounds on the Internet for the last few years -- though particularly in recent weeks -- shows a strange natural phenomenon that occurs when heavy, sediment-laden water from glacial valleys and rivers pours into the open ocean.
