lakemorpho: Lake Morphometry Metrics in R
Version 1.1.0

Lake morphometry metrics are used by limnologists to understand, among other things, the ecological processes in a lake. Traditionally, these metrics are calculated by hand, with planimeters, and increasingly with commercial GIS products. All of these methods work; however, they are either outdated, difficult to reproduce, or require expensive licenses to use. The lakemorpho package provides the tools to calculate a typical suite of these metrics from an input elevation model and lake polygon. The metrics currently supported are: fetch, major axis, minor axis, maximum length, maximum width, mean width,maximum depth, mean depth, shoreline development, shoreline length, surface area, and volume.
