Diffraction in water

Hi

Could someone explain to me... if a diffraction experiment that had a plane grating on it was submerged into water...why the diffracted light would produce extra angles that are wider and narrower than if the experiment had been carried in air?

Does it have something to do with refraction?

I would really appreciate an explanation, thanks.
