The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic continues to affect countries around the world and, although there are signs of slowing spread here and there, it is not possible to predict the end of this health emergency in the absence of ad-hoc therapy or vaccine. But in all this, it seems that nature does not miss man in the least. The roads and basins have long seen the absence of humans, and we have already seen how animals recover their spaces, the waters of Venice become crystal clear, sea turtles return to prosper and whales can now "talk to each other" in a finally silent ocean.
Now, it is the turn of the British, who are showing us their waters, usually not associated certainly with those of tropical paradises, to take on beautiful and inviting green-blue colors along the coasts near Portsmouth.
Taking and sharing the photos was Mike Woods, who flew his drone over Portsmouth to photograph the surrounding area. When he saw the photos, Woods was surprised to see how those waters have now become crystal clear.
Some believe that the sea around Portsmouth has become clear thanks to the reduction in pollution levels that accompanied the coronavirus lockdown. The reasons for this transformation may not necessarily be just these, but the images are fantastic and the British are the cash of this positive change, even if they do not know how long those waters will remain "tropical".
The color of the sea depends a lot on the quantity and type of particles that float in the waters, and the presence of these particles is largely influenced by boat traffic and other human activities, which thus make the waters more turbid.
This means that if you want clear and clean water, it is not only necessary to decrease the levels of pollution but also to leave those waters in peace, to reduce the quantity of suspended particles.
