What body of water separates the Baja California Peninsula from mainland Mexico?
It's not separated completely (it's a peninsula, not an island), but the main body of water separating Baja California from the rest of Mexico is the Gulf of California, an offshoot of the Pacific Ocean. Technically I suppose you could say that the Colorado River (which empties into the Gulf of California) also separates it, but the actual state border between Sonora and Baja California is only MAINLY the Colorado River (there are places where the border deviates from the river's course), and also the Colorado River is no longer really a river or even a body of water for its entire course (it dries up a few dozen miles from the mouth of the river, and for the remainder of its historical course it's either a dry gully or a negative estuary).

What percentage of Australia is covered by wetlands?
It is difficult to give a straight answer.
Despite being the driest continent on earth after Antarctica, Australia has 520 wetlands which are recognised by state authorities as being "important".
Coastal and marine wetlands, which make up 161 of these recognised wetlands, make up 42% of the coastal strip. The coastal strip is roughly defined as a 3 km strip extending from marine waters inland. This coastal strip also includes very large areas of mangroves and tidal flats, mostly in northern Australia. The percentage of the coastal zone defined as wetlands varies from 64% in Northern Territory to 14% in Tasmania.
There are also numerous wetlands areas inland, but many of these have dried up as a result of European settlement interrupting normal water flows. There are no readily available figures suggesting Australia's percentage of actual wetlands.

Phosphorescence occurs in places all over the world and it happens when small micro organisms " glow" in the water. These plankton like creatures come from the bottom of the ocean where it's dark so they only come out at night. I have seen phosphorescence in the puget sound before and it occurs around the middle of august in the summer but in the sound it only happens in summer. Most of the times I have noticed it's a clear night with no rain.
