(1) The area flanks Lake Pontchartrain and suffered from floods when a canal dike burst.(2) After that, she led us along a thin, icy path on a dike between the channel and a deep, muddy ditch with (I don't know why) sharp sticks (the remains of a fence?) jutting up from the bottom.(3) It's research that might benefit the Vancouver suburb of Richmond, which is reclaimed delta surround by a dike .(4) The wall zone is about 2-5 cm thick, and the intermediate zone is about 1.5 meters in the thicker portion of the dike .(5) This dike , in the vicinity where Richardson had mined high-grade gold ore, was believed to have had a damming effect on the ore solutions.(6) This location lies in the outer edge of the ring dike of the Lake George intrusive center approximately 0.5 mile northeast of the town of Lake George.(7) A granite dike, on the other hand, can give only a minimum age for the rock that the dike cuts across.(8) The Ajax vein structure contains both a mineralized quartz vein and brecciated mafic dike .(9) Huge platforms had been prepared and buried under cover of darkness which would soon serve as bridges over the dike and across the huge water filled ditch.(10) Sixty-six houses were flooded in Kostinbrod as well as part of the Roma neighbourhood in Ihtiman, Western Bulgaria where a dike burst and flooded the area.(11) But we will have to begin digging a great earthen dike outside the wall, immediately, and another outside that, ringed with pickets.(12) The silty river's dikes often tower above the surrounding farmland, which account for 15% of China's arable land.(13) The ditches, dikes and reed-edged fleets that crisscross the grazing marshes here are rich in invertebrates, including the scarce emerald damselfly.(14) The diked and filled wetland proved incapable of growing grain, and ironically now has been turned into a ├ö├ç├┐theme park├ö├ç├û displaying the ├ö├ç├┐traditional├ö├ç├û lives of the non-Chinese minority peoples who live in Yunnan province.(15) Much of the western part of the country is polders (low-lying lands) that have been reclaimed from the sea by dikes and dunes.(16) Almost one-quarter of the landmass is below sea level, protected from the encroaching sea by dikes and dunes.
