The blues and greens of the ocean will become even bluer and greener by the end of the century as a result of global warming, scientists have found.

Researchers say the colour changes are down to the effect of climate change on populations of tiny water-dwelling organisms, known as phytoplankton, that convert sunlight into chemical energy through photosynthesis, as well as effects on levels of other colourful components of the oceans.
