lakeMeanDepth | R Documentation |

Calculates average depth of lake as a mean of lake volume divided by lake surface area

```
lakeMeanDepth(inLakeMorpho, zmax = NULL, slope_quant = 0.5, correctFactor = 1)
```

`inLakeMorpho` |
An object of |

`zmax` |
Maximum depth of the lake. If none entered and elevation dataset
is inlcuded in inLakeMorpho, |

`slope_quant` |
The slope quantile to use to estimate maximum depth. Defaults to the median as described in (Hollister et. al, 2011). |

`correctFactor` |
This a factor used by |

Returns a numerica value for the mean depth of the lake
