TSAVI (Transformed Soil Adjusted Vegetation Index)


TSAVI = (s * (NIR - s * R - a)) / (a * NIR + R - a * s + X * (1 + s^2))
with s = soil line slope,
a = soil line intercept,
X = adjustment factor


ratio-based index,
limited range -1<TSAVI<1,
adjusted by soil line (a) and slope (s),
“effect of soil background minimized by X” (0.08 in first paper)
