The two oceans that stream together and do not mix

These rivers are beyond scientist explanation but it's good doing.

When two or more bodies of water meet, like rivers, it’s called a confluence. This occurs when two streams join to become one river or, as in the examples below, when a tributary joins a larger river.

The Thompson River is the 3rd largest river of British Columbia and is characterized by powerful rapids and beautiful canyons. It’s the clearer of the two rivers, as the Fraser River, which happens to be the longest river in Canada, is full of large amounts of sediment that give it a muddier look..

Both the Alaknanda and Bhagirathi Rivers are Himalayan rivers that are of significant importance to Hindu culture and history.

The Rio Negro, meaning Black River in Spanish, is the largest left tribute of the Amazon River and the largest black water river in the world. 

The Mosel River flows through France, Luxemburg, and Germany, eventually meeting with the Rhine River in Koblenz.
