Survey data were analyzed to produce five quantities that were descriptive of site topography: total site area, mean depth (total site volume divided by total site area), percent of site area below the inlet, and the volume (both dimensional volume and percent of total volume) below a horizontal plane located 50 cm (19.7 in) above the inlet elevation.
Mean depth was calculated by dividing the sum of all the depth measurements for each lake by the number of sites on that specific lake.
