Things to Remember

  • Gibraltar disconnects the Spain from Morocco so two big continents are separated by Gibraltar at western point and connects Mediterranean Sea with the Atlantic Ocean. In August 1965, Gibraltar was the codename given to the strategy of Pakistan to infiltrate Jammu and Kashmir and instigate the locals in starting a rebellion against Indian rule there. In August 1965, the ruling President of Pakistan was General Muhammad Ayub Khan.
  • Bosporus is the narrowest strait of the world that connects that joins Black Sea and Sea of Marmara. Its maximum length is 31 km which equal 19 in miles, and minimum width is 700 m (2300 ft) and maximum depth is 110 m (360 ft).
  • United Kingdom and France both are European countries and disconnected by Dover Strait. Both were the members of European Union but UK has left EU on January 31st, 2020. Brexit is the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union so now EU has 27 members.
  • Dardanelles is located in Turkey that joins Sea of Marmara and Aegean Sea. Turkey is a transcontinental country as its city Istanbul (previous name was Constantinople) is located in Europe and Asia.
  • Messina separates Italy from Sicily which is the largest island of Mediterranean Sea. It is a narrow between the eastern tip of Sicily (Punta Del Fero) and the western tip of Calabria (Punta Pezzo) in the south of Italy. It joins the Tyrrhenian with Ionian Sea within the central Mediterranean.
  • English Channel is the busiest shipping area in the world. It is an arm of the Atlantic Ocean (Second largest ocean in the world) that separates southern England from Northern France and links to the southern part of the North Sea by the Strait of Dover at its northeastern end. Maximum length is 560 km (350 miles), maximum depth is 174 m (571 ft.) and maximum width is 240 km (150 miles).
  • Channel and Strait both are confusing terms. It seems both are same but that’s not a reality. Strait is the narrow body of water that separates two landmarks but connects two big seas for example Strait of Tartary that separates Russian Island of Sakhalin from Mainland Asia and connects Sea of Okhotsk on the north, with the Sea of Japan on the south. Channel is a wide strait or waterway between two landmasses. Channels can be either natural or man-made. For example English Channel, Mozambique Channel etc.
  • Madagascar and Mozambique both are African countries and separated by Mozambique Channel.
