This function finds depressions on a 2D surface. It was intended to model the formation of liquid pools on a simulated geological surface (lakes pooling in depressions).

Usage:
[dMask, dDepths] = findDepressions(heights)

Returns both the logical mask of where depressions exist and the depths of those depressions.

I wrote the function for this paper specifically.

Hi Luke,
I try to understand this algorithm. Can you give me some papers from which you take inspiration to write this algorithm ?
Thanks,
Pierre
