Models spectral sensitivity (with oil droplets; optional) based on peak cone sensitivity according to the models of Govardovskii et al. (2000) and Hart & Vorobyev (2005).
sensmodel( peaksens, range = c(300, 700), lambdacut = NULL, Bmid = NULL, oiltype = NULL, beta = TRUE, om = NULL, integrate = TRUE, sensnames = NULL )
(required) a vector with peak sensitivities for the cones to model.
a vector of length 2 for the range over which to calculate the spectral sensitivities (defaults to 300nm to 700nm).
a vector of same length as peaksens that lists the cut-off wavelength
value for oil droplets. Needs either
a vector of same length as peaksens that lists the gradient of line tangent to the absorbance spectrum of the oil droplets. See Hart and Vorobyev (2005).
a list of same length as peaksens that lists the oil droplet types (currently accepts only "T", C", "Y", "R", "P") when Bmid is not known. Calculates Bmid based on the regression equations found in Hart ad Vorobyev (2005).
a vector of same length as
A vector equal in length to
A data frame of class
rspec containing each cone model as a column.
