Lake Morphometry for NHD Lakes in Lower Mississippi Region 8 HUC

Metadata Updated: March 31, 2016

Lake morphometry metrics are known to influence productivity in lakes and are important for building various types of ecological and environmental models of lentic systems. The lake morphometry dataset included here contains estimates of Surface Area, Shoreline Length, Shoreline Development, Maximum Depth, Mean Depth, Lake Volume, Maximum Lake Length, Mean Lake Width, Maximum Lake Width, and Fetch for each of the “lakepond” waterbodies in the NHDPlus V2. The current release of the datasets is version 0.1 and future refinements to the data are expected.
