Selten sieht man Wasser in dieser Farbe, und wenn man ihm mal begegnet, dann staunt man.

Wie kommt es zur Färbung des Wassers?

Wenn ein Gletscher über das darunterliegende Gestein scheuert, entsteht dabei ein sehr feines Puder, feiner als Sand. Geologen nennen es "Gletschermehl", oder "Steinmehl". Diese eisen- und Feldspat-reiche Substanz findet oft ihren Weg in Bäche, Flüsse und Seen und färbt dabei das Wasser braun, grau oder türkis.

Rarely do we see water in this colour, and if we happen to come across it, we marvel.

How does the water get its colouring?

When a glacier scours over the underlying rock, a very fine powder is produced, finer than sand. Geologists call it glacial flour or rock flour. This iron- and Feldspar-rich substance often finds its way into creeks, rivers and lakes and colours the water brown, grey and turquoise.
