lakeVolume: Caluclates Lake Volume in R

Description Usage Arguments Value References Examples

View source: R/lakeVolume.R

Description

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, zmax = NULL, correctFactor = 1)

Arguments

inLakeMorpho

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

zmax

Maximum depth of the lake. If none entered and elevation dataset is inlcuded in inLakeMorpho, lakeMaxDepth is used to estimate a maximum depth.

correctFactor

This a factor used by lakeMaxDepth to correct the predicted maximum lake depth. Defaults to 1.

Value

Returns a numeric value for the total volume of the lake
