    Dear Mohammad, the continuum removal (or convex hull) technique is used to normalize reflectance spectra so you can compare individual absorption features or entire spectra from a common baseline. The “continuum” is a convex hull and the spectra are normalized by setting
    the value of the hull to 100% . Removal of the continuum results in a normalization of the spectra and allows for comparison of absorption depths from a common baseline. Please see the figures in the topic “Method and software” for illustration and refer to the references given in the resources section. Hope this helps.

    Please explain the technique continuum removal?

    I would be very grateful.

    Thank you
