This function calculates the average density of a layer of water between two depths.

1 | ```
layer.density(top, bottom, wtr, depths, bthA, bthD, sal = wtr * 0)
``` |

`top` |
Numeric value of the depth (m) of the top of the layer from the water surface |

`bottom` |
Numeric value of the depth (m) of the bottom of the layer from the water surface |

`wtr` |
Numeric vector of water temperature in degrees C |

`depths` |
Numeric vector of depths (m) corresponding to water temperature vector |

`bthA` |
Numeric vector of water body cross sectional area (m2) corresponding to bthD depths |

`bthD` |
Numeric vector of water body bathymetric depths (m) corresponding to areal bthA values |

`sal` |
Optional numeric vector of salinity in Practical Salinity Units corresponding to water temperature vector. If left blank, salinity is set to be zero |

Numeric value of average water density for bounded layer in kg/m^3

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 | ```
top <- 2
bottom <- 6
wtr <- c(25.2,25.1,24.1,22.0,19.8,15.3,12.0,11.1)
depths <- c(0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7)
bthA <- c(10000,8900,5000,3500,2000,1000,300,10)
bthD <- c(0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7)
layer.density(top,bottom,wtr,depths,bthA,bthD)
