Water density, temperature and salinity of the glacial melt water and the off shore waters of Gulf of Alaska makes them too difficult to mix.
Not all water is the same. The make-up and temperature of ocean water differs greatly and the different types of water don’t always mix well. As this photograph shows, the density and salinity of the fresh water running off a glacier melt is so vastly different than the salty sea water of the Gulf of Alaska. The result is a distinct line where the two types of water meet but don’t mix.
