True they would grumble but 3000 feet elevation is NOT the top of the
mountain anyway. Quardu is around 10,000 feet. I am cutting a lot of
slack allowing 3000 feet. The 3000 foot contour is approximately at the
Syrian/Turkish border. It is a long way to Qardu from there.

See the graph with the vertical wall of water I posted tonight. In your
model you have a real problem with landing the ark at a higher elevation
than Shuruppak because you either have to have the water flow uphill or
you have to have a vertical wall of water or you have to have a flood over
a very large area i.e. the whole earth.
