What happens when fresh water flows over salt water?

    Fresh water has a lower density than saltwater which means it will “float” on top. This does not mean, however, that there is a clean line of delineation. Rather, the meeting of the two creates what is called brackish water. This effect creates very important habitats including estuaries, mangroves, and marshes.
