after sailing constantly for 3 years, I was never afforded such a cool phenomenon.
I did get to. witness "glass" conditions in the Indian ocean once.
thanks for sharing!
In oceanography, a halocline is cline caused by a strong, vertical salinity gradient within a body of water. Because salinity (in concert with temperature) affects the density of seawater, it can play a role in its vertical stratification. Increasing salinity by one kg/m3 results in an increase of seawater density of around 0.7 kg/m3.
In hydrology and related sciences and technologies, a cline is a comparatively thin, typically horizontal layer within a fluid, in which a property of the fluid varies greatly over a relatively short vertical distance.

This has nothing to do with the real meaning of yin and yang. Don't misuse words.
