    The salinity of the ocean is less in river deltas and in ocean access bays that have rivers that flow into them.

    An example of a river delta meeting the sea is the Mississippi and the Gulf of Mexico. click here: to see an image of the “Salinity Front”

    An example of a bay fed by a river delta is the San Francisco Bay that receives fresh water from the Sacramento River.
