The Strait of Gibraltar is an international strait between the southern tip of the Iberian Peninsula and the northwestern coast of Africa, connecting the Mediterranean Sea with the Atlantic Ocean. The length is 65 km, the width is 14-44 km, the depth in the fairway is up to 338 m.

In the Strait of Gibraltar, at different depths, the currents are directed in opposite directions. The surface current brings on average 55 198 km³ of water from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean Sea per year (with an average temperature of + 17 ° C and salinity above 36 ‰). The deep current brings 51 886 km³ to the Atlantic Ocean (with an average temperature of + 13.5 ° C and a salinity of 38 ‰). The difference of 3,312 km³ is mainly due to evaporation from the surface of the Mediterranean Sea.

Along the shores of the Strait of Gibraltar there are steep rock massifs, which in ancient times were called the Pillars of Hercules - the Rock of Gibraltar in the north and Jebel Musa in the south.
