Quran On Mixing of Seas and Rivers | Quran Al Hakeem
This partition zone of separation has a different salinity from the fresh water and from the salt water. This information has been discovered only recently using advanced equipment to measure temperature, salinity, density, oxygen dissolubility, etc.
The human eye cannot see the difference between the two seas that meet, rather the two seas appear to us as one homogeneous sea.
