Description

Calculate Redness Index after Barron & Torrent (1986) "Use of the Kubelka—Munk Theory to Study the Influence of Iron Oxides on Soil Colour" using Munsell colors converted to LAB. DOI: 10.1111/j.1365-2389.1986.tb00382.x. Accepts vectorized inputs for hue, value and chroma, produces vector output.
