Sentinel-2 Red Edge Position (S2REP)

The S2 Red Edge Position results from the following equation: S2REP = 705 + 35*( (Red+ VNIR3)/2 - VNIR) / (VNIR2-VNIR) using Sentinel-2 Bands 4 (Red), 5 (VNIR), 6 (VNIR2) Band 7 (VNIR3). S2REP is sensitive to both (crop) chlorophyll content and growth status. Generally, the higher the S2REP value, the higher is the chlorophyll content.
