The colour of the sea is generally deep ' RED TIDE ' - what is it? blue, but certain circumstances green, brown or pink colour can also be observed. The blue colour is characteristic of the open seas, whereas the green water is more common in coastal areas, and the brown or red water is observed in nearshore waters only. The blue colour of the open sea is the result of the scattering effect of the light against the water molecules or scattering against suspended minute particles or even due to the radiation and colour changes of the clouds.
