Description

Operates a continuum removal on a vector.

Usage

1

Arguments

x

a numeric vector

wl

the wavelengths of the spectra

upper

if TRUE, removes the upper convex hull from the spectra, if FALSE, takes the lower convex hull

Details

This operation is commonly done to normalize reflectance spectra and allow comparison of individual absorption features from a common baseline. The removal is based on the upper convex hull of the spectra.

This function is working on vectors. It may applied on matrix or data.frames using the apply function, or on Spectra* objects using the apply_spectra function.

Value

A numeric vector with its continuum removed.
