Abstract
    The color of the sea is determined by the contents of the water, especially the concentrations of suspended particulate matter (SPM), phytoplankton pigments such as chlorophyll (CHL) and colored dissolved organic matter (CDOM). Reversely, optical sensors that measure the water-leaving reflectance spectra allow us to calculate the desired concentration products. In this paper, a method is introduced that is valid for both case 1 and 2 waters. To this end, model is fitted to reflectance spectra, using simulated annealing for optimizing the mean square of the reflectance over all spectra.
