Short summary
Three alternative models for estimation of absorption of chromophoric dissolved organic matter (CDOM) have been formulated. The models were based on empirical database containing measurements from different regions of the Baltic Sea and three Pomeranian lakes in Poland. An assumption regarding continuum of inherent optical properties in marine and estuarine waters and freshwater has been proved and enabled the accurate estimation of CDOM absorption in various environments.
