The Gulf of Alaska – an arm of the Pacific Ocean ranges from the Alaska Peninsula and Kodiak Island (west) to the Alexander Archipelago(east) . The entire shoreline is a tough composition of forest, mountain, and tidewater glaciers as coast is densely cut. Majority of the seasonal rain showers and snowfall in the Pacific Northwest and Southwestern United States comes from it as it is a generator of storms.
There is a place in Gulf of Alaska where two oceans meet each other but do not mix. The oceans meet because the freshwater glaciers melted to join by the flow of water. They do not mix because of the difference in the salinity and densities of the two water bodies which creates a surface tension between them and prohibits them from mixing outlined by a thin layer of foam .
