UNUSUALLY CLEAR AND COLORFUL OCEAN WATERS SEEN ALONG JERSEY COAST

Swimmers, fishermen and sightseers have been treated to an unusual natural phenomenon along the Jersey coastline this summer. The ocean waters have been crystal clear and tinted a tropical shade of aquamarine, for a noticeably different appearance of the water at the beach. Weather experts report in the Press of Atlantic City, that the coloration is caused by a phytoplankton bloom that was fed by an upwelling of cool water earlier this month. The water is clearer due to an ongoing drought across parts of the Northeast.
