I recently acquired a LiDAR data set that included a 1 meter DEM. I generated 1, 2 and 5m contour layers but I am seeing a lot of contours within water bodies. I suspect this is either caused by wave movement or in shallow areas where rocks/debris are present. I generated the contours using ArcGIS Desktop 10.3.1 3D Analyst.
What are my options for removing these contours? Should this elevation issue be addressed at the Lidar/DEM level? I have a shapefile that delimits the land from water that I could use for a break line.
