This work is based on the results of a cruise of the R/V Akademik Lavrent’ev in September 2011 in the Laptev and East Siberian seas. The optical characteristics of one of the most characteristic components of the river runoff colored dissolved organic matter (CDOM), which intensely absorbs solar radiation in the short-wave spectrum range are analyzed. On the basis of experimental data, the possibility to use spectral characteristic not only for quantitative estimations but also for determination of the DOM composition in the waters of the East Siberian shelf is shown.
