    Nice try -

    Hint 3: Right hemisphere,

    Hint 4: Wrong continent. The general knowledge of the participants astounds me

    Hint 5: Salt water.

    Now I'll leave you alone for a while to cogitate ......... :)

    That's very very interesting - and you may have guzzundered me - all depends on how wide the strait is - any idea?

    It's also known as the Greenland Strait Cataract - perhaps for political reasons - and it is pretty far from Denmark (between Iceland and Greenland). I think I read somewhere its about 290km wide at its narrowest point.

    Ok, let's stop the intrigue ....

    I'm thinking of the eastern end of Bass Strait between the Australian mainland and Tasmania. The flow is eastward, averages about 50 metres in depth, is approximately 240 km wide at its narrowest point and generally around 50 metres deep dropping onto the edge of the continental shelf at about 450 metres, and stepping down into the Tasman Trench at 5,200 metres (17,060ft).

    Some parts of my brain may still be functioning, but working properly is questionable. Yours ???
