Easy Peasy... for them.
Have you ever heard of the Ancient practice of Ear Coning ? This was practiced regularly in those times.
They knew how the suction/vacuum worked with a spiral shape, I imagine they learned about it from this simple hygiene practice of the ears on how a spiral tunnel can work mechanically.
They also knew alot about manipulating and changing the landscape to move water. Ancient Aqueducts.

I agree very smart and incredible indeed. I'd love to see this stuff for real.

See? You, my friend, are genius!

This is just what i am talking about: man is a brilliant observer, and is adept at making these kinds of connections.

Its still a very, very popular way to treat ear aches among the locals. Some of the curandero medicine is a farce (the red thread on the forehead, for example). But ear coning is solid science.

I saw this and thought; "That's odd, I watched a documentary on these things years ago that said the same thing." Yeah. This riddle was solved years ago, and without satellites. Odd that someone would go through the trouble of making it look like it was something it isn't. God bless ya.

I would certainly expect the wind blowing across the hole to create suction rather than pushing down into underground tunnels.

But perhaps someone could point to some site with this odd physics explained?
Preferably by someone with an actual education that is relevant to the problem at hand.

I think the concept is far more simple. The holes allowed wind to enter the underground system. Pushing the water through the tunnels.

It was not a water retrieval system, it was a wind powered irrigation system rather than a gravity powered one with sloping tunnels. The spirals provided easy access to the tunnels, didn't have much to do with airflow.

The actual "discovery" was the extent of the system.

we are on a road trip...Lima, Paracas,Nazca, Arequipa, Lake Titicaca, Cuzco, Lima. It's 3,000 something km road trip.

Also on a to do list is a quick hop to the PumaPunku site in Bolivia.

If we make it back...I'll drop a few pics in a new thread

we did the pan american highway from lima down to nazca and back, driving in peru can be nerve racking. Shades of road warrior the way they drive.

Without seeing their analysis it's difficult to have much of an opinion. Off the top of my head though, rock walls could be problematic because even if they assisted in directing the flow of air down into the hole when it was blowing in one direction, they'd block the wind when it was blowing the opposite direction. The same could be said of angling the holes. It would really depend on the topography, wind patterns etc.

Agreed about having to see their analysis, but my comment was based on the assumption that they understood the wind patterns and this is how/why they formed the conclusion that they did. Therefore, if the wind patterns are known, it seems like the vast majority of the puquio "wells" could have been designed specifically for the localized wind patterns.

In any event, I'm still not convinced that they have solved the mystery with this conclusion, but again, without access to their analysis, it's hard to be convinced of anything that they would say, as I'm not one to just trust someone because they say something is so.
