# Is the temperature different and or salinity different can lead to different colour of the water bodies?

I had skimming on an article about Thermocline and Halocline. How can two seas not mix? However, I am still curious on:

1. Why the effect of Thermocline and Halocline are distinguishable based on colour different?
2. Is not the substance that is dissolved in the water will give a colour in the water bodies?
3. Do the temperature different and the salinity different will change the colour of the water bodies?
4. Do we measure the effect of Thermocline and Halocline by thermal and salinity parameter also instead of based on visual appearance?

And explanation with figure would be nice. Thanks before.
