replace_bad_pixs(
  x,
  bad.pix.idx = FALSE,
  window.width = 11,
  method = "run.mean",
  na.rm = TRUE
)

Arguments

x

numeric vector containing spectral data.

bad.pix.idx

logical vector or integer. Index into bad pixels in x.

window.width

integer. The full width of the window used for the running mean.

method

character The name of the method: "run.mean" is running mean as described in Whitaker and Hayes (2018); "adj.mean" is mean of adjacent neighbors (isolated bad pixels only).

na.rm

logical Treat NA values as additional bad pixels and replace them.

Details

Simple interpolation replaces values of isolated bad pixels by the mean of their two closest neighbors. The running mean approach allows the replacement of short runs of bad pixels by the running mean of neighboring pixels within a window of user-specified width. The first approach works well for spectra from array spectrometers to correct for hot and dead pixels in an instrument. The second approach is most suitable for Raman spectra in which spikes triggered by radiation are wider than a single pixel but usually not more than five pixels wide.

Value

A logical vector of the same length as x. Values that are TRUE correspond to local spikes in the data.

Note

In the current implementation NA values are not removed, and if they are in the neighborhood of bad pixels, they will result in the generation of additional NAs during their replacement.
