The dominant wavelength of a color. Also known as "chromaticity." A color system (color space, color model) measures color by hue, saturation and luminance. The hue is the predominant color, the saturation is the color intensity (from white to pure color), and the luminance is the brightness (from light to dark). See color space, HSB, HSL and CIE Lab.
