The border between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans is like a line between two worlds. As if the two oceans meet at an invisible wall which does not let them flow into each other and mix their waters.
Why does it happen? We know for sure there is no invisible wall inside, and water is water. So, what could interfere with its mixing?
The reason for this strange phenomenon is the fact there are different water density, temperature and salinity of the glacial melt water and off shore waters making it difficult to mix.
