----------- Dr. Yon OCN100 December 4, 2007 Ocean Color 1. Complete the M&M's experiment by following the directions on the web site. Which wavelength of light (color) is absorbed first? Based on what you observe, explain why the ocean appears to have a blue-green color. (1.5 pts.) The red wavelength is absorbed first. The ocean appears to have a blue-green color because those wavelengths are absorbed and a depth much deeper than other colors on the spectrum. This makes the blue-green wavelength the most prevalent. 2. What are the two major constituents that affect light in the ocean surface? (1 pt.) The two major constituents are phytoplankton and inorganic particles. 3. Light intensity and wavelengths are related to the amount and type of particles in the water. How do phytoplankton interact with the light? (1 pt.) Phytoplankton absorb red and blue light for the chlorophyll and transmit in the green. 4. What do the letters "C.Z.C.S." stand for?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
