The Delta Works in the Netherlands (Holland) is the largest flood protection project in the world. This project consists of a number of surge barriers, for examples: 1- The Oosterscheldekering is the largest of the 13 ambitious Delta Works series of dams and storm surge barriers and it is the largest surge barrier in the world, 9 kilometres (5.6 mi) long. The dam is based on 65 concrete pillars with 62 steel doors, each 42 metres wide. It is designed to protect the Netherlands from flooding from the North Sea. 2- The Maeslantkering is a storm barrier with two movable arms; when the arms are open the waterway remains an important shipping route however when the arms close a protective storm barrier is formed for the city of Rotterdam. Closing the arms of the barrier is a completely automated process done without human intervention.

Windmills are more than just a traditional part of the Dutch landscape; they have played a key role in the war Holland has waged against the sea for centuries. Today the Dutch are using ever-more innovative methods to combat rising sea levels, strategies that may also benefit other nations confronting the effects of climate change. Martha Teichner reports.

"Architectural engineers have created some amazing structures in this world but the Veluwemeer Aqueduct in the Netherlands is truly the best. Most aqueducts are basically bridges that are built above water. But the Veluwemeer Aqueduct is a bridge for the passing ships while those driving in cars go through a tunnel underneath the bridge. In other words, it is an underwater tunnel where the ships sail on the top and the cars travel underneath it. That way traffic jams can be avoided because cars no longer have to wait for boats to pass by anymore." - The Mind Circle

The Afsluitdijk (English: Enclosure Dam) is a major causeway in the Netherlands. It is damming off the Waddenzee, a salt water inlet of the North Sea, from the fresh water lake of the IJsselmeer. It was constructed between 1927 and 1933 and runs over a length of 32 kilometres (20 miles) and a width of 90 m, at an initial height of 7.25 m above sea-level. The Afsluitdijk is a fundamental part of the larger Zuiderzee Works, a manmade system of dams, land reclamation and water drainage works, the largest hydraulic engineering project undertaken by the Netherlands during the twentieth century. Its main purposes are to improve flood protection and create additional land for agriculture. Beside the dam itself is also the necessary construction of two complexes of shipping locks and discharge sluices at both ends of the dike. The complex at Den Oever includes the Stevin lock and 3 series of 5 sluices for discharging the IJsselmeer into the Wadden Sea. The other complex at Kornwerderzand is composed of the Lorentz locks and 2 series of 5 sluices. In total there are 25 discharge sluices. It is necessary to routinely discharge water from the lake since it is continually fed by rivers and stream and polders draining their water into the IJsselmeer. The Afsluitdijk was Holland's first 130 kph road (1st of March 2011). March 9, 2014

The Dutch have an eternal war with water. They have conquered the sea and floods, but it was a hard fight. The Dutch built dikes to protect the country against floods. Windmills were used to pump the water out of the areas below sea level and later to drain lakes into polders, because of the need for more land. The Dutch polders are now famous scenery in Holland. The Dutch also made a large dam (Afsluitdijk) to separate the Southern Sea (Zuiderzee) from the North Sea and turned it into a giant lake, the IJsselmeer. Later on, the province of Flevoland was created as a large polder island in the IJsselmeer. Delta Works The most recent big flood was in 1953 during a giant storm. The province of Sealand (Zeeland) was flooded after the collapse of several dikes and more than 1,800 people drowned. The Dutch government decided that this must never happen again and they initiated the Delta Works, a project that lasted almost 50 years with big dikes, dams and storm surge barriers, which was completed in 1997. Before that time it was already famous worldwide. Now, the American Society of Civil Engineers recognizes it as one of the seven wonders of modern world. Since the Dutch are famous for water management, they are hired for projects all over the world. For more information, please visit www.iStip.com

Like, Share and Comment if You like! theFACTory -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- FACTS ABOUT THE NETHERLANDS 1. Holland and Netherlands are not the same. Holland is an area of 2 provinces, namely North Holland and South Holland, in the Netherlands. - Source 2. In Dutch, the 'Netherlands' means "Low Country" and it is a low country: 26% of the Netherlands’ area is below sea level. Schiphol Airport, where most foreign visitors first land in, is three meters below sea level. - Source 3. Tulip is considered national symbol (flower) of the Netherlands with over 1,500 varieties, accounting for nearly 80 percent of the world's tulips. Tulip, however, is not native to the Netherlands: it was imported from Turkey in the 16th century. During 'Tulip Mania' in the 1630s, the price of a single tulip bulb had been raised as much as a house before the economy collapsed, leaving huge crisis afterward. - Source 4. The national color is orange, taken from the House of Orange, who led the Dutch revolt against Spain and then became the Dutch royal family. The King of the Netherlands now is King Willem-Alexander ascended the throne in April 2013. He is the first Dutch king in 123 years, following three queens. - Source 5. The Netherlands was the first country in the world to legalize gay marriage in 2001. - Source 6. Prostitution is also legal in the Netherlands. However, prostitutes must not be younger than 18, and clients must not be under 16. - Source 7. Keukenhof, which means "Kitchen garden” in Dutch, also known as the Garden of Europe, is one of the largest flower gardens in the world. About 7 million flower bulbs are grown annually in the park, covering an area of 32 hectares. - Source 8. The Netherlands’ anthem, Wilhelmus, is the world’s oldest anthem with both the music and lyrics dated from the 16th century. - Source 9. The windmill is also an unofficial national symbol of the Netherlands. Together with a complicated system of draining, the windmills help keep the low land dry for habitation and cultivation. The windmills built the country – without them, Holland (the lowest but most important part of the Netherlands) would be very different today. - Source 10. The term “Go Dutch” is a joke about the practice of splitting bill when dating in Netherlands. The Dutch have two reasons for that. First is gender equality. The Dutch appreciate the gender equality very much, and they think males and females should play an equal role in a relationship. Secondly, the Dutch have a notable reputation for their thrift. However, to be clear, many visitors to the Netherlands do not think the Dutch are scrimpy at all. - Source 11. The traditional Dutch toilet has the hole situated toward the edge of the seat for 2 reasons: (1) the observation deck allows you to inspect your “deposits” for health reasons, and (2) it uses less water, which matches the Dutch style as they always care about energy efficient ideas - Source 12. The Dutch are the biggest eater of licorice in the world. 32 million kilos of licorice are consumed in the Netherlands every year. - Source 13. Bikes outnumber people in the Netherlands. There are more than 18 million bikes while there are about 17 million people. A Dutch person cycles 2.5 km a day on average, and the Netherlands has about 15,000km of bike lane with high priority for the cyclers. - Source 14. The Dutch discovered both Australia and New Zealand. They named Australia “New Holland” after the province of Holland and named New Zealand after the province of Zeeland. - Source 15. In the Netherlands, the average height of men is 184 cm, and that of women is 170 cm, making Dutch the tallest people in the world. Some believe it results from both DNA and dairy. - Source 16. A Dutch person drinks 74 liters of beer per year on average. And according to The Brewers of Europe, the Netherlands exports approximately 50% of its beer production, which is a bigger proportion than that one of any other country in the world. - Source 17. Clogs or "Klompen" are Dutch wooden shoes which have been used in the Netherlands as industrial footwear for factory workers, farmers, fishermen, artisans, etc. to protect their feet. - Source

"Netherlands" literally means "lower countries", influenced by its low land and flat geography, with only about 50% of its land exceeding one metre above sea level. Most of the areas below sea level are artificial. Since the late 16th century, large areas (polders) have been reclaimed from the sea and lakes, amounting to nearly 17% of the country's current land mass.

Basic Topografie In this video we ask you to locate The Netherlands on the map of Europe. Are you able to? The Netherlands are better known as Holland. It is a very small country. Most foreiners don’t know where to find it. In this video we will show you where it is located. Holland is surrounded by the countries Germany, Belgium, France and Great Britain. Nearest capitals: London, Berlin, Paris and Brussels, headquarters of The European Union. We show you flashes of the best known Dutch cities: Amsterdam, capital of The Netherlands, famous for its canals lined with 17th century houses. Rotterdam, Europe’s largest port, and well known for its modern architecture. The Hague, where the Dutch gouvernement has it’s residence, as well as the ’International Court of Justice’, located in ‘Het Vredespaleis’ which means ‘the Peace Palace’. About the Dutch waters: The Netherlands borders the North Sea. In the north there are 5 inhabitant wadden islands. The Wadden Sea is UNESCO world heritage. Before 1927 there was a large sea in the middle of the country, the Zuiderzee. After the construction of a 30 kilometer barrier dam, the 'Afsluitdijk’, it became a freshwater lake. The name was changed to IJsselmeer. Major rivers Rhine and Meuse flow through the Netherlands to the North Sea. All this water together and the fact that the most of The Netherlands is below sea level, is a serious threat to the Dutch population. See how the Dutch defend themselves against the water in our interesting video ‘The battle against the water’. Find out all about the Netherlands at www.hollandholiday.net

The Dutch Grebbe mountain, the Sint-Pieters mountain and the Vaalser mountain all have one thing in common: they're not mountains. Because geographers think a hump is only a hill until it's at least 500 metres high. The find the reason for Holland's lack of mountains, you need only look beneath your feet, to the earth's crust. It may seem steady, but actually it's always on the move. That's why there are Earthquakes and vulcanic eruptions. All this movement has torn up the earth's surface, and divided it into tectonic plates. When these plates collide, you get mountain ranges. That takes millions of years, so we don't celebrate mountain birthdays. You couldn't afford the candles, mate. These plate tectonics have given us wonderful things as The Alps, but they are also the reason Holland is flat as a pancake. Because where there are ridges, there are also flats. Our low land even used to be under water, but because the ocean was kind enough to leave us some sand and clay, we were able to build dikes. God created the Earth, but the Dutch created Holland. So, no mountains... at all... STOP THE PRESSES! As of 2010 the Caribbean island of Saba is a special municipality of the Netherlands! And that means the Kingdom finally has a proper mountain!

Welcome to the View from Above! A series where we take you on a Journey to some of the most beautiful places on earth! Netherlands can be called the heart of Northern Europe. Flanked by Germany and Belgium, and sharing maritime borders with England, this small state is truly in the middle of European affairs. But, instead of conforming, Netherlands stands out and surprises all visitors with its unique traditions and customs. Its beautiful landscapes and architecture are adequately represented by an equally beautiful people. Transport yourself to the unique confines of Amsterdam, then to the dams and levees of Zeeland, before zooming above the blaze of colourful flowers in the Dutch countryside. View From Above captures Netherlands and its people by using cutting-edge DJI unmanned recreational drones, taking shots of the charming country in ways that have never been seen before. Netherlands, literally meaning “Lower Lands” in reference to the country’s height in relation to sea-level, has been home to a number of cultures and traditions. Ancient Germanic and Roman influence made way for Norman expansion. Norman rule was overthrown by the expanding Holy Roman Empire commandeered by Frankish princes, and the Franks made way for the Burgundian and Hapsburg kings who later became the dukes of Dutch estates. These dukes and princes later formed a union of sorts that was coordinated in The Hague, and thus began the golden age for the Dutch, who controlled a vast sum of wealth thanks to their great banking and trading empires. Netherlands, sometimes known by its historic name ‘Holland’, has its history of wealth and trade invested in its capital of Amsterdam. Amsterdam is a web of canals and little streets of which a multitude of different people call home. The city is a treasure trove of hidden jewels but the travelling enthusiast should definitely tick the more well known attractions like Rijksmuseum, the Anne Frank House, the Van Gogh Museum and the Red Light District off their list. If visitors are looking for a more modern Dutch city, then a visit to Rotterdam is recommended, but it’s in The Hague and Utrecht where visitors can be treated to more classical Dutch architecture and lifestyle. The Netherlands has always been known to be vertically challenged. The country does not rise much unless you travel to the far south and west, and for this reason they suffer from frequent flooding. With rising sea levels, Netherlands has needed to implement mechanisms that prevent the seas from completely submerging low lying farmlands and towns. A trip to the world renown Delta Works around Zeeland region will have every visitor marvelling at Netherland’s technical and mechanical expertise. A vast system of levees, locks, sluices, dams and tide-activated barriers stop the oceans slow advance. http://www.deltawerken.com/Deltaworks... Netherland’s lowlands are dotted with little towns and villages making their livelihoods in and amongst the damp waterways and canals. A trip to Engewormer, the marshy area north of Amsterdam, is a favourite walking and cycling destination where visitors can experience the birdlife and appealing Netherlands countryside. These kind of areas are home to Netherlands’ iconic windmills which have been pumping water off the scarce dry fields for generations. Towns closer to the coast, like that of Hellevoetsluis, have their beginnings entrenched in their watery surroundings. These cities in the mouths of canals are popular destinations for sailing and other water-sports. Netherlands is known to be a great exporter of flowers, and the gem of their flower trade is the Keukenhof gardens where flower producers have been allowed to pageant their tulip and bulb blooms for decades. Netherlands is a beauty that is a must-visit for anyone travelling to Europe. View from Above could not have made these astonishing videos without the help of the DJI unmanned recreational drones.

Drone video from Netherlands. All shots were captured on Phantom 4 Pro Plus in the late summer of 2018. The Netherlands is a country located mainly in Northwestern Europe. Together with three island territories in the Caribbean (Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba), it forms a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Netherlands' literally means 'lower countries', referring to its low land and flat geography, with only about 50% of its land exceeding 1 metre (3 ft 3 in) above sea level. Most of the areas below sea level are the result of land reclamation beginning in the 16th century, resulting in large areas known as polders that amount to nearly 17% of the country's territory.

Day 24 of our 5 week road trip around Europe. Driving from Rotterdam in the Netherlands down the coast to Gravelines in France. During our journey we crossed several large sea bridges in the Netherlands which prevent the sea water from flooding their country - most of which is below sea level. We then cross the border into Belgium where my World War 2 history buff Dad got to visit the Atlantic Wall Museum in Ostend, Belgium. Then it's across the border into France for a walk along Dunkirk beach and watching the sun set over the Gravelines Lighthouse from my hotel room. Daily travel vlogs will be uploaded throughout our trip. If you enjoyed this video, subscribe for the latest uploads. Date filmed: Sunday 17 April 2016 Music: YouTube Audio Library

The Battle Against the Water The Dutch quite have a reputation in their battle against the water. No wonder, because half the country borders on the North Sea and it is the delta of large European rivers, Rhine and Meuse, in Dutch Rijn and Maas. River Rhine rises in Switzerland and flows over a distance of 800 kilometers through Germany to The Netherlands. It transports vast amounts of meltwater from the Alps and rainwater to the North Sea. While the Meuse must discharge lots of water from France and Belgium. So it’s understandable the Dutch have a history with floods. Before 1927 the Zuiderzee was open to the North Sea. This caused many floods. That’s why the Dutch decided to separate these two seas by constructing a 30 km long barrier dam to protect the area from floods. The Zuiderzee became a freshwater lake, renamed IJsselmeer. The population was now better protected from the water, but fishing villages had a problem. The biggest disaster happened in 1953. A combination of storm surge and spring tide flooded almost the entire region of Zeeland. 1836 people died in a horror night. To prevent such a disaster from happening again the Dutch constructed a masterpiece: The Delta Works. These water management constructions protect the whole area against the water. The construction took more than 25 years and cost 5 billion euro’s. The video shows you the map of The Netherlands around 1560. There was much more water than nowadays. The Dutch drained many lakes by pumping out the water with their famous windmills, creating polders. Although many automated pumping stations took over their jobs, these very old mills are still in function. Most of The Netherlands is below sea level. To keep their feet dry the Dutch have to pump 24-7. The video shows you what the country would look like without dikes.

Flevo Polder Area, Zuyder Zee, Holland (Netherlands). Aerial shot flying over a pumping station set in the middle of a flooded area of Flevoland which is to be reclaimed. This area is called the Polder of Flevoland in the former Zuyder Sea. Various shots inside the pumping station showing large pumps in action. These pumps have run non stop for over 200 days ridding the area to be reclaimed of over seven million gallons of water. Various shots flying over the reclamation area showing that already high spots of land are appearing in the vast expanse of water. Various shots at a Dutch landing strip of reed seed being loaded into light aircraft. Air to air shots of the light aircraft dropping the seed over the reclaimed land. The reeds aid in cleaning soil and also in further drainage of the land which is hoped to be cultivated fully by 1980. (F/G Dupe. Neg.) Date found in the old record - 04/06/1968.

Known as the "Dutch Dialogues" the city of Norfolk, VA hosted a contingent of Dutch urban designers, engineers and architects for a week of in-depth immersion into Norfolk's flooding issues in order to gain new insights into how to solve the sea level rise problem from a country that's mostly below sea level. This visit marks the beginnings of a multi-faceted, multi-agency, multi-resource approach to life at sea level. http://www.lifeatsealevel.org/about-dutch-dialogues/

Beelden uit de televisieserie Nederland van Boven, VPRO The Netherlands (i/ˈnɛðərləndz/; Dutch: Nederland [ˈneːdərˌlɑnt] ( listen)) is a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, consisting of twelve provinces in North-West Europe and three islands in the Caribbean. The European part of the Netherlands borders the North Sea to the north and west, Belgium to the south, and Germany to the east, and shares maritime borders with Belgium, Germany and the United Kingdom. It is a parliamentary democracy organised as a unitary state. The country capital is Amsterdam and the seat of government is The Hague. The Netherlands in its entirety is often referred to as "Holland", although North and South Holland are actually only two of its provinces. The Netherlands is a geographically low-lying country, with about 20% of its area and 21% of its population located below sea level, and 50% of its land lying less than one metre above sea level. This distinct feature contributes to the country's name: in Dutch (Nederland), English, and in many other European languages, its name literally means "(The) Low Countries" or "Low Country". Most of the areas below sea level are man-made, caused by centuries of extensive and poorly controlled peat extraction, lowering the surface by several meters. Even in flooded areas peat extraction continued through turf dredging. From the late 16th century land reclamation started and large polder areas are now preserved through elaborate drainage systems with dikes, canals and pumping stations. Much of the Netherlands is formed by the estuary of three important European rivers, which together with their distributaries form the Rhine-Meuse-Scheldt delta. Most of the country is very flat, with the exception of foothills in the far southeast and several low hill ranges in the central parts. The Netherlands was one of the first countries to have an elected parliament, and the country is a founding member of the EU, NATO, OECD and WTO. Together with Belgium and Luxembourg it forms the Benelux economic union. The Netherlands had the tenth-highest per capita income in the world in 2011. The country is host to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and five international courts: the Permanent Court of Arbitration, the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, the International Criminal Court and the Special Tribunal for Lebanon. The first four are situated in The Hague, as is the EU's criminal intelligence agency Europol and judicial co-operation agency Eurojust. This has led to the city being dubbed "the world's legal capital". The Netherlands has a market-based mixed economy, ranking 13th of 157 countries according to the Index of Economic Freedom. In May 2011, the Netherlands was ranked as the "happiest" country according to results published by the OECD

A 2015 scientific study published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science estimates that a full exploitation of accessible fossil fuel resources is sufficient to entirely melt the Antarctic ice sheet. With an initial raise of 3 meters (10 feet) per century, sea levels would reach up to 58 meters (190 feet). What about The Netherlands?
