Defines functions lakeMaxDepth

Documented in lakeMaxDepth

#' Estimate maximum lake depth
#' 
#' This function uses slope and distance to estimate max depth.  This is based 
#' on the assumption that the slope of the surrounding topography is similar 
#' to the bathymetry of the lake (Hollister et. al 2011).    
#' 
#' @param inLakeMorpho An object of \code{\link{lakeMorphoClass}}.  Output of the 
#'        \code{\link{lakeSurroundTopo}} function would be appropriate as input
#' @param slope_quant The slope quantile to use to estimate maximum depth.  
#'                    Defaults to the median as described in (Hollister et. al, 
#'                    2011).     
#' @param correctFactor Value used to correct the predicted maximum lake depth.  
#'        Defaults to 1. Corrections are simply accomplished by multiplying 
#'        estimated max depth by correction factor. Correction factors can be 
#'        determined empirically by regressing the predicted depth against a 
#'        known maximum depth while forcing the intercept through zero.  The 
#'        slope of the line would then be used as the correction 
#'        factor(Hollister et. al, 2011).
