Question #100548
what is a large arm of an ocean or sea that lies within a curved coastline
Expert's answer

An inlet from the ocean or sea, which is often enclosed in a coastline and is also typically navigable or unnavigable, is known as a gulf. Even though a majority of these inlets tend to be invisible in some geographical areas, gulfs are easily differentiated from bays since they have a narrower opening as well as they tend to be bigger than bays but technically smaller than the sea. Traditionally, these “large arms” were clearly defined depending on the navigability, size and indentation enclosed within a coastline. Good examples of these large ocean inlets include the Gulf of Mexico, the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Aden.
