The water level of the lake during these years was especially low. The survey focused on the new beaches that were exposed at elevations lower than 211.5 m below sea level. Except for the shoreline, most of the surveyed area was covered with thick vegetation and no new sites were discovered (see ‘Atiqot 22:1–12 for the survey from 1990). It seems that a thin layer of recent sediment (mainly sand and clay) covered most of the area; therefore, the survey focused on examining little 'islands' opposite the shore of Degania 'A'. No excavations were conducted.
