10 Astonishing places where rivers, seas and oceans merging

In geography, the term "confluence" means the connection of two different rivers together. There are several types of river confluence. It happens that a small river merges with a large one and the latter absorbs it. And sometimes with each other there are two rivers of the same greatness, the merger of which already becomes like a real confrontation. Lets see the 10 Astonishing places where rivers, seas and oceans merging

1. The confluence of the Jialing and Yangtze rivers in Chongqing, China

Eleuthera Island, Bahamas, in this place the turquoise-green waters of the Caribbean Sea are separated from the blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean by a thin, natural, stone formation called “Glass Window Bridge”.

4. The meeting point of the Atlantic with the Arctic waters.

The fronts are areas of large horizontal variations (gradients) of temperature and salinity. They constitute density boundaries that separate bodies of water with contrasting thermohaline characteristics. They produce vertical flows that provide the necessary nutrients for great biological activity. They stimulate the growth of large phytoplankton, mainly composed of fast-growing species.
The large phytoplankton generates short and efficient trophic networks, where much of the primary productivity is channeled to larger organisms.

5. The confluence of the Rio Negro and Solimines rivers near the city of Manaus (Brazil)

The convergence of the Rio Negro and Solimines rivers in Brazil. Six miles from Manaus in Brazil, the Rio Negro and Solimines are connected but not mixed for 4 kilometers. Rio Negro is dark water and Solimines is bright water. This phenomenon is explained by differences in temperature and flow rate. Rio Negro flows at 2 kilometers per hour and 28 degrees Celsius, while Solimines flows at 4 to 6 kilometers and 22 degrees Celsius.

6. The confluence of the three rivers - The Danube, Iltsa and Inna (Germany)

The confluence of the three rivers Ilts, Danube and Inn in Passau, Germany. Yelts is a small bugle river, the Danube in the middle, and the Inn in light colors. The Inn is even wider and more crowded at the confluence of the Danube, but is considered an influx.

7. The confluence of the Rhone and Arv rivers in Geneva (Switzerland)

On the left side of the river is the translucent Ron, which originates from Lake Le Mans. On the right side of the river is the muddy Arva, which feeds on many glaciers of the Shamoni Valley.

8. The confluence of the Drava and Danube rivers near the Croatian city of Osijek

The confluence of the Drava and the Danube rivers, Osijek, Croatia. On the right bank of the Drava River, 25 kilometers upstream of the confluence of the Danube, is the city of Osijek.

9. Green and Colorado, USA
Green and Colorado, USA

The confluence of the Green and Colorado Rivers in Canyonland National Park, Utah, USA. Green is green, and Colorado is brown. The channels of these rivers flow through rocks of varying composition, which is why the colors of the water are so contrasting.

10. Tobol and Irtysh, Tobolsk, Russia

The confluence of the Irtysh and Tobol rivers near Tobolsk, Tyumen Oblast, Russia. Irtysh - light, muddy, Tobol - dark, transparent.
