Correspondingly, why is the ocean water brown?
Nearly the entire volume of the Atlantic Oceanwater is clear and essentially colorless (as is true of alloceans). Near shore in any ocean, if riverwater that is brown because it carries a lot ofsediment is mixing into the ocean the mixture will lookbrown until the sediment settles out.
Additionally, why is the water in the Gulf of Mexico Clear? One of the biggest reasons for murky water issuspended or stirred-up sediments, which are caused by wateraction due to storm swells or waves, or from sediments carried intothe ocean from rivers. Florida boasts beaches with crystal clearwater, both on the Gulf of Mexico and on the AtlanticOcean.
