-It is clear that both contributions are important and we may safely assume that contribution 3 is important as well. 
  
 All the blue is gone. This clearly illustrates that the blue color of the ocean has nothing to do with wavelength-dependent reflectivity of the water surface, but is simply caused by the reflection of diffuse Rayleigh-scattered skylight (plus Rayleigh scattering of the reflected direct sun) by the ocean surface. In fact, we have three contributions:​ All the blue is gone.
