Filling area between contour lines to replicate flood inundation

Discussion created by chrisgrime on Feb 17, 2012
I'm currently trying to create a flood inundation map for my final year project.

Is it possible to fill the 'area' between a set contour value in order to replicate an increase in water level?

I am very new to arcgis, i have only been studying this for a week or 2, so please forgive me if this is basic.

I have attached an image of the area of study.

If there's a better way to proceed, please do let me know.
