In colorimetry, the Munsell color system is a color space that specifies colors based on three color dimensions: hue, value (lightness), and chroma (color purity). It was created by Professor Albert H. Munsell in the first decade of the 20th century and adopted by the USDA as the official color system for soil research in the 1930s.

One of the most interesting facts about color blindness is about inheritance of the disorder. Color blindness is one of the genetic disorders in humans. As the most common form of this deficiency is related to X chromosome or color blindness chromosome, color blindness tends to be more common in males than in females. But color blindness genetics also suggest that even though women are not color blind themselves, they are very active carriers of color blindness. Interestingly, a mother is bound to pass her red-green color blindness to all her sons, but its less likely for the father to do the same.
