This function returns lake volume for the input lake. The volume is calculated using maximum lake depth and maximum distance ratio to transform all pixels and thus, distances, to an estimated depth. These depths are multiplied by the area of the pixel and summed.

Usage

1
lakeVolume(inLakeMorpho, correctFactor = 1)

Arguments

inLakeMorpho

An object of lakeMorphoClass. Output of the lakeSurroundTopo function would be appropriate as input
