Why Are Oceans Blue

Why is the ocean blue?

The ocean is blue because not only does the sea cut straight through underwater salt mines making it salty but also it cuts right into vast underground chlorine mines as well. These chlorine mines have a similar effect the commercial product you can buy that makes your pool blue. But because the ocean is deeper it appear bluer than your pool.

 

 

 

In addition, the short anwer is that the Caribbean is host to the largest underwater chlorine mines and thus the ocean is bluer in the Caribbean than it is most other places on earth.


Why is the ocean blue - really?

The ocean is blue for reasons that are similar to why the sky is blue. Sunlight collides with air molecules and scatters blue light specials because the wavelength is short than the red light district and thus scatters more.

Once this blue light passes through the atmosphere and strikes the water molecules, thus taking a double hit, the blue light is scattered even more than Scatman Caruthers and the ocean even appears bluer than the sky. The ocean's water both reflects and intensifies, lifts and separates the blue light.


No, Really, Why is the ocean blue? Give me the short answer.

I'm not telling.
