Opened 17 November 1869, after 10 years of construction, it allows ships to travel between Europe and South Asia without navigating around Africa thereby reducing the sea voyage distance between Europe and India by about 7,000 kilometres (4,300 mi).

    Major Shipping Canals And Lakes Of The World - Static GK (IBPS PO,SSC CGL,UPSC) Video By RANGOON BABA TRICKS A ship canal is a canal especially intended to accommodate ships used on the oceans, seas or lakes to which it is connected, as opposed to a barge canal intended to carry barges and other vessels specifically designed for river and/or canal navigation. Because of the constraints of accommodating vessels capable of navigating large bodies of open water, a ship canal typically offers deeper water and higher bridge clearances than a barge canal of similar vessel length and width constraints. A lake is an area of variable size filled with water, localized in a basin, that is surrounded by land, apart from any river or other outlet that serves to feed or drain the lake.Lakes lie on l...

Travel by cruise ship to Panama Canal , Visit Panama Canal, Panama Canal Tours, Panama Canal Vacation Travel Videos HD, World Travel Guide http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=World1Tube The Panama Canal is a 77.1-kilometre (48 mi) ship canal in Panama that connects the Atlantic Ocean (via the Caribbean Sea) to the Pacific Ocean. The canal cuts across the Isthmus of Panama and is a key conduit for international maritime trade. There are locks at each end to lift ships up to Gatun Lake, an artificial lake created to reduce the amount of excavation work required for the canal, 26 metres (85 ft) above sea level. The current locks are 33.5 metres (110 ft) wide. A third, wider lane of locks is currently under construction and is due to open in 2016. France began work on the canal in 1881, but had to stop because of engineering problems and high mortality due to disease. The United States took over the project in 1904, and took a decade to complete the canal, which was officially opened on August 15, 1914. One of the largest and most difficult engineering projects ever undertaken, the Panama Canal shortcut greatly reduced the time for ships to travel between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, enabling them to avoid the lengthy, hazardous Cape Horn route around the southernmost tip of South America via the Drake Passage or Strait of Magellan. The shorter, faster, and safer route to the U.S. West Coast and to nations in and around the Pacific Ocean allowed those places to become more integrated with the world economy. It takes between 20 and 30 hours to traverse the canal. During construction, ownership of the territory that is now the Panama Canal was first Colombian, then French, and then American. The US continued to control the canal and surrounding Panama Canal Zone until the 1977 Torrijos–Carter Treaties provided for handover to Panama. After a period of joint American–Panamanian control, the canal was taken over by the Panamanian government in 1999, and is now managed and operated by the Panama Canal Authority, a Panamanian government agency. Annual traffic has risen from about 1,000 ships in 1914, when the canal opened, to 14,702 vessels in 2008, the latter measuring a total of 309.6 million Panama Canal/Universal Measurement System (PC/UMS) tons. By 2008, more than 815,000 vessels had passed through the canal; the largest ships that can transit the canal today are called Panamax. The American Society of Civil Engineers has named the Panama Canal one of the seven wonders of the modern world.

This vessel is the first 13,000+ TEU container ship to transit the new expanded Panama Canal and the largest vessel of any kind to ever transit from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean. However, since I shot this video, a slightly larger capacity vessel the OOCL FRANCE at 13,208 TEU made the transit in late May, 2017. This vessel likely paid over a million dollars for this 10 hour transit. However it would have costed several million dollars in fuel and other expenditures if it had to travel around South America and would add another three weeks transit time from Asia to the east coast of the United States. Also worth mentioning that COSCO Shipping is (as of April 1, 2017) part of the Ocean Alliance with partners CMA CGM, Evergreen, and OOCL. COSCO was previously part of the CKYHE alliance.

It cuts through the narrow Isthmus of Corinth and separates the Peloponnese from the Greek mainland, thus effectively making the former peninsula an island.

The canal was mooted in classical times and an abortive effort was made to build it in the 1st century AD. Construction finally got under way in 1881 but was hampered by geological and financial problems that bankrupted the original builders. It was completed in 1893 but, due to the canal's narrowness, navigational problems and periodic closures to repair landslides from its steep walls, it failed to attract the level of traffic expected by its operators. It is now used mainly for tourist traffic.

Historically, the two canals had been joined at Falkirk by a flight of 11 locks that stepped down across a distance of 1.5km, but these had been dismantled in 1933, breaking the link. The boat here is lifted from the canal basin beside the Forth and Clyde canal up to the aqueduct, before going through the 160m/1095ft Rough Castle tunnel to the Union Canal. Wheel rotate sequence speeded up by x2 as lift takes 5 minutes! The Falkirk Wheel was opened by the Queen in May 2002, and is now one of Scotlands most popular tourist attractions. The wheel has an overall diameter of 35 metres (115 ft) and consists of two opposing arms which extend 15 metres beyond the central axle and take the shape of a Celtic-inspired, double-headed axe. Two sets of these axe-shaped arms are attached about 25 metres (82 ft) apart to a 3.5 metres (11 ft) diameter axle. Two diametrically opposed water-filled caissons, each with a capacity of 80,000 gallons, are fitted between the ends of the arms. These caissons (also known as gondolas) always weigh the same whether or not they are carrying their combined capacity of 600 tonnes of floating canal barges as, according to Archimedes' principle, floating objects displace their own weight in water, so when the boat enters, the amount of water leaving the caisson weighs exactly the same as the boat. This keeps the wheel balanced and so, despite its enormous mass, it rotates through 180° in five and a half minutes while using very little power. It takes just 22.5 kilowatts (30.2 hp) to power the electric motors, which consume just 1.5 kilowatt-hours (5.4 MJ) of energy in four minutes, roughly the same as boiling eight kettles of water.

Here's a cool GoPro time lapse of our boat traveling through all 6 lock chambers of the Panama Canal (Miraflores Locks x2, Pedro Miguel Lock and Gatun Locks x3) from the Pacific Ocean, up 85 feet to Lake Gatun, then down 85 feet to the Atlantic Ocean. An amazing engineering marvel that will be 100 years old next year. -- Enjoy See more from our Trans-Americas Journey - www.trans-americas.com/blog The Panama Canal (Spanish: Canal de Panamá) is a 48-mile (77.1 km) ship canal in Panama that connects the Atlantic Ocean (via the Caribbean Sea) to the Pacific Ocean. The canal cuts across the Isthmus of Panama and is a key conduit for international maritime trade. There are locks at each end to lift ships up to Gatun Lake (85 feet (26 m) above sea-level).

UPDATE: -------------------------------- Since publication of this footage, shipping traffic has been slowed to proper speeds and monitored by the US & Canadian Coast Guard to ensure all vesels maintain compliance. This video was part of a series of videos studied and analyzed by the USCG to determine that the upriver vessels were traveling anywhere from 3 knots to 5 knots over the allowed 8 knot (land relative) upriver limit (10.4 knot water-relative limit) during the shipping season. Speed limits have now been re-enforced throughout the St Lawrence seaway, and the issues shown in this video have since subsided. http://northcountrynow.com/news/ship-speeds-seaway-cut-due-high-water-levels-0112566 SHIPPING TRAFFIC INFORMATION -------------------------------- Great Lakes Shipping traffic scaled up in the 1970s with the addition of the "seaway cut" at the entrance of lake St. Clair. This cut allowed larger vessels to navigate the great lakes, and the narrow connecting waterways (as seen in this video). Despite vessel size increases, commercial shipping vessels have coexisted happily with land owners. In fact, for nearly 100 years - shipping traffic and effects have been non-problematic in this region, due to vessels traveling at slow speeds through navigable waterways. However, recent technical advances in GPS and computer aided steering mean that large vessels raging from 500 - 1,020 feet in length can now navigate the waterways much faster than before. Combined with shipping companies placing increased time-pressure on vessels - this has lead to ships moving much faster than seaway engineers have engineered for. Previously large Taconite Ore carriers, such as the vessel shown, moved much slower due to human operation of steerage and navigation. While increased speed is good for profit, the negative effect is that faster speeds through narrow waterways cause an increased amount of "Tidal Bore" due to fluid dynamics and displacement https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tidal_bore Even small increases of speed of only a few Knots can greatly magnify the effects of tidal bore exponentially (an increasint log when graphed) due to water being a "non compressible medium". The displacement effect in this video is being caused by a 1000' long Freighter heading northbound on the St. Clair river, running at 4 knotts over the allowed speed of travel early in the shipping season. INFORMATION ABOUT THE VIDEO AND ISLAND: -------------------------------- Many the cottages on Harsens Island have existed since the early 1800's, and all have coexisted, without issue, with shipping traffic happily. The small brown cottage in this video actually dates back to 1850 (with obvious structural modifications made over 150 years). This property in particular has been family-owned and is historically considered one of the original island cottages, with deeded family records dating back before Michigan declared statehood. Information on Harsens Island: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harsens_Island NEGATIVE IMPACTS OF INCREASED SPEEDS DURING 2011 - 2014 -------------------------------- Until 2011 - This canal used to be a breeding ground for numerous fish species such as Bass, Walleye, and Sturgeon. Ship traffic in the main channel wasn't a problem in the past, as strict speed limits on freighters was maintained. Due to the washouts created during this shipping season, the breeding grounds were eliminated - and the St. Clair river sturgeon is now considered and "endangered species" https://www.fws.gov/Midwest/sturgeon/biology.htm

The Suez Canal (Arabic: قناة السويس‎ Qanāt al-Suways) is an artificial sea-level waterway in Egypt, connecting the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea. Opened 17 November 1869, after 10 years of construction, it allows ships to travel between Europe and South Asia without navigating around Africa thereby reducing the sea voyage distance between Europe and India by about 7,000 kilometres (4,300 mi). A new stretch of the canal was just opened in 2015. Read More: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suez_Canal

Major Shipping Canals And Lakes Of The World - Static GK (IBPS PO,SSC CGL,UPSC) Video By RANGOON BABA TRICKS A ship canal is a canal especially intended to accommodate ships used on the oceans, seas or lakes to which it is connected, as opposed to a barge canal intended to carry barges and other vessels specifically designed for river and/or canal navigation. Because of the constraints of accommodating vessels capable of navigating large bodies of open water, a ship canal typically offers deeper water and higher bridge clearances than a barge canal of similar vessel length and width constraints. A lake is an area of variable size filled with water, localized in a basin, that is surrounded by land, apart from any river or other outlet that serves to feed or drain the lake.Lakes lie on land and are not part of the ocean, and therefore are distinct from lagoons, and are also larger and deeper than ponds, though there are no official or scientific definitions.Lakes can be contrasted with rivers or streams, which are usually flowing. Most lakes are fed and drained by rivers and streams. Guys PLZZ like comment share and subscribe to my channel. Your support means a lot to me. Thanx for watching the video
