Dead water, a term used to describe a layer of fresh water that rests atop salt water without mixing, can be a hazard to ships. For instance, a ship powered by a propeller may have a rough time moving. In some cases, the ship may be left at a complete standstill. If able to maneuver, the ship may have to travel at speeds 20% lower than the normal speed. Dead water may occur when glacier runoff flows into the salt water.
