The Quran on Seas andRivers
Modern Science has discovered that in the places where two different seasmeet, there is a barrier between them. This barrier divides the two seas so thateach sea has its own temperature, salinity, and density. For example,Mediterranean sea water is warm, saline, and less dense, compared to Atlanticocean water. When Mediterranean sea water enters the Atlantic over theGibraltar sill, it moves several hundred kilometers into the Atlantic at a depthof about 1000 meters with its own warm, saline, and less dense characteristics.The Mediterranean water stabilizes at this depth (see figure 13). 
Figure 13:
The Mediterranean sea water as it enters the Atlanticover the Gibraltar sill with its own warm, saline, and less densecharacteristics, because of the barrier that distinguishes betweenthem. Temperatures are in degrees Celsius (C°). (

Although there are large waves, strong currents, and tides in these seas, they donot mix or transgress this barrier.The Holy Quran mentioned that there is a barrier between two seas that meetand that they do not transgress. God has said:
He has set free the two seas meeting together. There is a barrierbetween them. They do not transgress.
(Quran, 55:19-20)
