The question of ‘
how is sea foam formed
?’ is the first that comes to people’s mind. The answerto this question would be that a multitude of aspects are involved while trying to unravel theintrigue behind this natural phenomenon.To start with, there are two kinds of sea foams that can be formed – the White Sea foam and the Redor brown coloured foam.The latter, sometimes referred to as the ‘Red Tide’ is caused by the presence of waste productscreated by human activities. Certain researchers also add that the presence of single-celled alga –phytoplankton – can cause the foam to take the reddish or brownish hue. Foam on the seaexcluding these causes is white in tinge.Decomposing or decomposed materials from the seas like plants, animals and excreta arechurned by the continuous movement of the tides and form cloistered bubbles of air, areretained beneath the sea-waves and are whipped towards the sea-shore because of the pullof the currents. These waves are frothy and when they crash against the shore, the froth at thetop is left behind which causes the foam effectAlternatively, single-celled alga which are powdered finely are regarded to be the causation othe white sea foam forming as their powdery substance emanates sea foam
forming proteinwhich in-turn results in the formation of foamChemical waste discharges by industries and sewerage into the oceans and seas also causesuch foam to be formed on the sea

Even while an intriguing phenomena, the foam on the sea is an indication of the larger problemsthat could be caused to the populace living near the sea-shore. In the better interests of thesepeople and for birds that can be saved, while natural foam causing agents cannot be nullified oreliminated, the man-made causing agents can very well be brought into control. [stextbox id="grey" caption="Read More About"]Know the Sea  Java Sea Fatigue at sea  Sea Cucumbers[/stextbox]
