Astounding Truth From The Quran - OCEANOLOGY

Barrier Between Sweet & Salt Waters - Consider the following Quranic verses:
"He has let free the two bodies of flowing water, meeting together. Between them is a barrier which they do not transgress." (Al-Quran 55:19-20).
In Arabic text, the word barzakh means a barrier or a partition. This barrier is not a physical partition. The Arabic word maraja literelly means 'they both meet and mix with each other'. Early commentators of the Quran were unable to explain the two opposite meanings for the two bodies of water, i.e they meet and mix, and at the same time , there is a barrier between them. Modern Science has discovered that in the places where two different seas meet, there is a barrier divides the two seas so that each sea has its own temperature, salinity & density. There is a slanted unseen water barrier between the two seas through which water from one sea passes to the other. But when the water from one sea enters the other sea, it loses its distinctive characteristic and becomes homogenized with the other water. In a way this barrier serves as a transitional homogenizing area for the two waters. The scientific phenomenon mentioned in the Quran was also confirmed by Dr. William Hay who is well known marine scientist and professor og Geological Sciences at the University of Colorado, U.S.A. The Quran also mentions this phenomenon also in the following verse:
"And made a separating bar between the two bodies of flowing water." (Al-Quran 27:61).
This phenomenon occurs in several places, including the divider between the Mediterranean & the Atlantic Ocean at Gibralter. But when the Quran speaks about the water between fresh & salt water, it mentions the existence of 'a forbiding partition' with the barrier:
"It is He Who has let free the two bodies of flowing water: one palatable & sweet, and the other salty & bitter, yet has he made s barrier between them, and a partition that is forbidden to be passed." (Al-Quran 25:53).
Modern science has discovered that in estuaries, where fresh (sweet) & salt water meet, the situation is somewhat different from that found in places where two seas meet. It has been discovered that distiguishes fresh water from salt water in estuaries is a 'pycnocline zone with a marked density discontinuity separating the two layers." This partition (zone of separation) has a salinity different from both the fresh water and the salt water. This phenomenon occurs in several places, including Egypt, where the river Nile flows into the Mediterranean Sea.
