Why are lakes so many different colors?



  1. 0 Votes

    The water in lakes can appear red, brown, green, and/or gray. “The color you see is the result of material in the water that reflects back different wavelengths of the light spectrum. This material can be either dissolved or suspended. Dissolved material may make water look clear and blue or clear and brown. Suspended particles in the water intercept light and reflect back color to our eyes, making water look muddy brown, cloudy green, or gray.”
