Reasons for different water colors

Water is very important in our daily life. Without it, living beings cannot survive. It is up to 75% of the human body. The driest cells are bone cells. They also contain up to 20% water content. Within the brain cell it is up to 5%.

All chemical reactions in the body occur in the presence of water. Vital organs of our body, such as the heart and brain, lie in the water. Here water conservation work is performed.

Water plays a vital role in keeping the body’s temperature uniform. Pure water is colorless, odorless and tasteless. But when we look at the water of a river or lake, we see it in different colors.

Inside the sea we see water having blue color. Today we will look at the reasons for appearing in different colors of water.

The sky plays its role in coloring the oceans. Large seas are actually like a mirror that only reflect a quarter of the light received.

Sunlight is a combination of several colors that are only visible in the rainbow. Each color slowly dissolves in water at its turn. At a depth of less than four meters the red color disappears. Yellow color fades to less than ten meters deep. While blue color is left only at a depth of 20 meters.

After that there is complete darkness. If a man is injured 25 meters deep in the sea, his flowing blood will turn dark green.

When the ocean is dark and deep, the sea level reflects the blue of the sky. If it is less deep and clean then the color of its base will be visible on the surface.

The reason is that sea water looks so transparent in the white sand islands, the color of the sea depends mostly on the elements that make up those colors, or how long these elements are unresolved in the water and stay in a state of static.

If the sea has a lot of turbulence, the sea becomes a bit green. In China, the big rivers bring colorful mud with them. When they fall into the small rivers, they give it the same color.
