saybiantv, I think the vibraflotation is beyond the scope of most of us and not likely to solve problems we would encounter on our relatively small projects.
I remove the like the other comments here and really each piece of land has to be evaluated regarding the best method. Machinery costs money to use even if you own it, but with proper thought each piece can be used to advantage I think. I noticed Sepp used different machines in different videos and think he would make the best use of what he had available.
I build dams in smaller lifts after getting down to the mineral clay layer below. The vibration and weight of the Bobcat or backhoe are enough for excellent compaction. I experiment a bit each year not making major changes until I see the effect. I keep spillways to the side on native soil to prevent washing out the new soil. My soil is ideal for not losing a water retention improvement and consists of clay and rocks.
Here is a small one I made several years ago for my cows. The mud in the water is from my dog playing in it otherwise it was clear with mosquito fish in it. They found their own way from the ponds above. It is the third in a series.
Steams are only seasonal in this area except my year around spring which does not leave my property.
Egyptian professor friend recommending Catfish in my year round spring pond about 300 feet above the lower pond.
Emerson, I always enjoy your alternative viewpoints and the idea that I may look at things different after viewing it from your angle.
