We present here the optimization method developed for solving inverse problems on estimation of the chlorophyll concentration in [mg/m3], the dissolved organic "yellow" substance and the suspension in units of light absorption [m-1], using the spectrum of the radiation upwelling from the water surface. The method will work both in the open ocean and in coastal zones, because no assumptions on the correlation between the sea water components concentration is done when developing it. The efficiency of the proposed method has been demonstrated by processing the experimental data on the sea spectral brightness obtained from a research vessel in the open sea and coastal waters.
