The Magnificent City of KSA
we are thankful for cute hearts , nidokidos friend , to share these photos with us.
these pics are personally taken by her with Nokia E97 & iPhone 3GS mobiles' cameras. This city is Jeddah, one of the major cities of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). It is considered as the commercial and wealthiest city of KSA and Western Asia. And this spot is exactly the coast of Red Sea.
In these pictures you will see two different seas water meeting. the color and temperature of water is
different. Modern Science has discovered that in the places where two different seas meet, there is a barrier between them. This barrier divides the two seas so that each sea has its own temperature, salinity, and density.
(Principles of Oceanography - Davis, pp. 92-93)
For example, Mediterranean sea water is warm, saline and less dense, compared to Atlantic ocean water. When Mediterranean sea water enters the Atlantic over the Gibraltar sill, it moves several hundred kilometers into the Atlantic at a depth of about 1,000 meters with its own warm, saline and less dense characteristics. The Mediterranean water stabilizes at this depth (Principles of Oceanography p. 93).
The Mediterranean sea water as it enters the Atlantic over the Gibraltar sill with its own warm, saline and less dense characteristics, because of the barrier that distinguishes between them. Temperatures are in degrees Celsius (C).
Even in depths (indicated here by darker colors) up to 1,400 meters and at distances ranging from a minus -100 to +2,500 meters, we find that both bodies of water maintain their individual temperatures and salinity.
Although there are large waves, strong currents, and tides in these seas, they do not mix or transgress this barrier.
