“Bad water line”

Cont’d from page 3

The Baltic Sea is connected to the North Sea through narrow and shallow sounds between Denmark and Sweden. The outlet consists of a series of basins separated by shallow sills which obstruct efficient water exchange.

[31:27] If all the trees on earth were made into pens, and the ocean supplied the ink, augmented by seven more oceans, the words of GOD would not run out. GOD is Almighty, Most Wise.

The environmental conditions of the Baltic Sea are defined by the fresh water input from rivers and precipitation, and by the limited inflow of more saline water from the North Sea. A clear salinity gradient exists from the almost oceanic conditions in the northern Kattegart to the almost fresh water condition in the Northern Bosnian Bay.

[25:53] He is the One who merges the two seas; one is fresh and palatable, while the other is salty and undrinkable. And He separated them with a formidable, inviolable barrier (evaporation).

A salinity barrier also exists between the surface and the seabed of the Baltic. Saline water, naturally heavier than fresh water, flows along the bottom of the sea. The fresh water on the surface of the sea does not mix

appreciatively with the saline water underneath. The salinity barriers prevent the exchange of substances, i.e., oxygen, nutrients, and pollutants, between the two layers.

[67:30] Say, "What if your water sinks away, who will provide you with pure water?"

[2:22] The One who made the earth habitable for you, and the sky a structure. He sends down from the sky water, to produce all kinds of fruits for your sustenance. You shall not set up idols to rival GOD, now that you know.

The Quran educates us to reflect on the creations of God so that we can reinforce our appreciation to the Merciful Lord.

[2:164] In the creation of the heavens and the earth, the alternation of night and day, the ships that roam the ocean for the benefit of the people, the water that GOD sends down from the sky to revive dead land and to spread in it all kinds of creatures, the manipulation of the winds, and the clouds that are placed between the sky and the earth, there are sufficient proofs for people who understand.

May God bless all of us,

M. Irtaza
