Another Exampe: From contour maps we determined that the optimum height for the water Level on Stakke Lake would have been about 1,380 feet. But at that water level the ground to the north east of Stakke Lake would have been flooded. That is what the LIDAR image indicates!
But if the land to the north east of Stakke Lake were flooded, we knew that those thousands on men had to build dikes to keep Stake Lake from overflowing into Hay Creek. We thought we saw traces of dikes on the contour maps, but we could not be sure how high they might have been. The LiDar image appears to show us where the dikes were.
Take a look at the center of the image. You will see an area of non-compacted earth connected by a narrow strip of land to the non-compacted earth of Stakke Lake at the elevation of 1380 ft.
This section of the LIDAR image may reflect a dike break out sometime after the thousands of men no longer came to monitor the dikes. The rush of the waters toward the northeast may have washed away the earth that had been compacted by thousands of men passing by for hundreds of years. The LIDAR image is consistent with a mammoth washout.
So the LIdar image appears to tell us where the dikes were and where the dikes failed. These events took place before Christ was born!
