Water appears blue due to the way it absorbs and reflects light. Water molecules tend to absorb long-wavelength parts of the light spectrum and reflect shorter wavelengths. When wh...
Water appears blue because it can absorb long wavelength light better than short wavelength light.
When light enters water, the longer wavelengths of light such as red, yellow, and orange are absorbed, and mostly blue light is reflected back.
While relatively small quantities of water appear to be colorless, water's tint
becomes a deeper blue as the thickness of the observed sample increases. The

That cool, refreshing glass of water on a hot day may appear colorless, but water
is actually a faint blue color. The blue color becomes visible when we look ...
The ocean is blue because water absorbs colors in the red part of the light
spectrum. Like a filter, this leaves behind colors in the blue part of the light
Blue wavelengths are absorbed the least by the deep ocean water and are
scattered and reflected back to the observer's eye; Particles in the water may help
I would like to know why water's blue in the ocean and clear in a cup? My teacher
lives in by the beach and the color are green, red, gray, black at night.
The real reason the ocean is blue is because water, pure water, is blue. Yes,
according to its frequency spectra, water is a very light shade of turquoise blue.
Water slightly absorbs more light at the red end of the spectrum so that it is in fact
coloured a very pale greenish blue but you need several feet of water ...
