Short summary
In our paper, new versions of a simplified mathematical description (parameterization) of light absorption coefficients by phytoplankton suspended in the surface layer of the Baltic Sea in relation to chlorophyll a concentration and the concentration of accessory pigments are presented. The practical value of the simple parameterizations presented in this work should be seen in the opportunities for applying them to the development of remote-sensing methods.
