Ocean Color Web Daily data from Nasa

During my MFA on Water Issues, the colour of water was a concern I had.  Here is a Nasa website proof of its importance and daily data maps.

“The propagation of light underwater is a fundamental property of water that affects a large number of ecosystem processes as well as aesthetic judgments and suitability of water for certain designated human uses [Davies‐Colley et al., 2003]. Light penetration affects the balance of pri- mary production between submersed aquatic vegetation (SAV) and phytoplankton [Dennison et al., 1993], thereby affecting the flow of energy throughout the aquatic food web [McClelland and Valiela, 1998].”
