I'm not sure if I am reading this question correctly, but clean real"bluewater" on theSeaWiFS shots you mentionedappear as the darker/brighterblue color...the numerical reading for "bluewater" is typically around 0.1mg/m3. At levels around 0.3 - 0.4mg/m3 (which are the lighter blue on the SeaWiFS), our eyes see this as a clean "transitional" color, not "blue" but not "green" either. Levels > 0.4mg/m3 will appear green to us (& green on the SeaWiFS).
