Calculates the Roberts and Cooper (1989) Solar-radiation Aspect Index
Additional arguments passed to raster::calc
raster class object of oberts and Cooper (1989) Solar-radiation Aspect Index
Roberts and Cooper (1989) rotates (transforms) the circular aspect to assign a value of zero to land oriented in a north-northeast direction, (typically the coolest and wettest orientation), and a value of one on the hotter, dryer south-southwesterly slopes. The result is a continuous variable between 0 - 1. The metric is defined as: trasp = ( 1 - cos((pi/180)(a-30) ) / 2 where; a = aspect in degrees
