#' @title Calculate all stratified periods based on temp threshold

#' @param surfT data.frame with two columns, datetime and surface temperature
#' @param botT data.frame with two columns, datetime and bottom temperature (must be same nrow as surfT)
#' @param temp_thresh Threshold to define stratified in deg C (default = 1)
#' @param force_positive Is only warm stratified periods to be considered (drop winter when 0 is above 4 deg water, default TRUE)
