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.

Rijkswaterstaat needs millions of cubic metres of sand every year to maintain the Dutch coast. That sand comes from the seabed. Rijkswaterstaat asked Deltares to look at more than eighty areas in the North Sea to assess their suitability as borrow areas for nourishment sand and fill sand. But the extensive geophysical measurements and bore operations generated much more information. Never before has the bed of one of the busiest seas in the world been mapped out so extensively.

Subscribe! The Netherlands is extremely vulnerable to flooding. So the Dutch constructed the longest dam in Europe. And it has never broken in the last 85 years. This is the story of its construction. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Like & Share! Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/averythingch... Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/AveryThing ----------------------------------------------------------------------- In the past The Netherlands would flood regularly, with many early settlements built on higher ground. Between 800 and 1300 these floods were especially bad, caused by rising sea level due to a warmer climate. These floods slowly connected these lakes with the North Sea This new body of water was called the Zuiderzee, or Southern Sea. Ships could now travel freely between the North Sea and the most inner parts of what today we call the netherlands. Including this little town called Amsterdam, Becoming a major trading city, create the first stock exchange, and develop the early forms of modern capitalism. All because of these floods. The Southern Sea made the Netherlands more vulnerable to flooding. Over the centuries, the sea water would periodically sweep in and flood the surrounding areas, destroying crops, homes, and families. Something had to be done. The netherlands. Must. Be. Protected. It is at this point that we have to look at man named Cornelis Lely. Lely was born in 1854 and received an education in civil engineering at the Delft University of Technology. He began working as an engineer for the Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water Management in The Netherlands. First helping the ministry to implement some canal-laws. Then he joined the Southern Sea Association whose goal was to close off the Southern Sea using dikes. Over the course of 5 years, he proceeded to lay out a brilliant plan that would revolutionize dike-building, permanently close off the Southern Sea against any flood, and pump dry large swaths of land to be used for agriculture. What was revolutionary was not what he wanted to build, but HOW he planned to build such a large dike; many before had tried but they never figured out HOW to do. But this idea wasn’t cheap. In fact, his plan would cost as much as the entire Dutch government budget for a whole year. To put that into perspective, The Netherlands’ government budget for 2018 is 285 billion Euro. Lely’s plan therefore also had to include a way to make A LOT of money. He wanted to pump large areas of land dry to mine clay and use the new fertile land for agriculture. We will talk more about how this part of his plan was executed in the next episode of this series, but spoiler alert: This made the Netherlands the second largest exporter of food in the world. And then two events happened that made parliament realize that they NEEDED to have this dam and these polders. The first, is world war one. While most of Europe at the time was embroiled in one of the bloodiest wars in history, the netherlands remained neutral. Furthermore, all of its neighbours were at war. This meant that food was scarce as millions now had to be fed without producing food or other products themselves. This increased the demand for food and, in a world without artificial fertilizer, lots of farmland was NECESSARY to keep one’s own population well fed… and the netherlands is a small country with a lot of people, so it DESPERATELY needed fertile land to keep its growing population fed. But the most compelling reason came in 1916. In the middle of the night, a large flood came crashing into the netherlands. The dikes… broke. Thousands of homes were damaged and destroyed. Holes of over 100 meters wide were clawed out of the dikes by the rushing water. And several counties went bankrupt trying to repair this damage. First the Dutch had to build a sturdy foundation. Ships came, day in day out, dropping millions of cubic meters of material into the sea. On the inland side, heavy stones were deposited, on the seaside, boulder clay was dropped into the sea. They were kept in place with brushwood mattresses, which in turn were held down by boulders and old concrete. Then till was collected from the sea bottom and deposited upon this foundation. Finally, the dike was finished by raising it above sea level with sand and clay. To make sure the dike was sturdy, grass was planted on top. The dikes was closed on May 28th 1932, two year earlier than expected. the Southern Sea was turned into a lake: the IJsselmeer, or IJssel Lake, named after the river IJssel which deposited its water into this new lake. And this water needed to be deposited from this newly formed lake into the sea. So at both ends of the dikes sluices were constructed to let the water flow into the sea. And as salt water was deposited into the sea, the Ijsellake slowly converted from a salt water lake into a fresh water lake.

Support Us On Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/MysteryHistory We Are Also On Steemit: https://steemit.com/@mysteryhistory Divers from oil companies located within the north sea, have been discovering the remains of a drowned ancient city which once spanned from the UK all the way to Denmark. An ancient city so massive its suspected population has been estimated well into the tens of thousands. A team of climatologists, archaeologists and geophysicists, have now successfully mapped the area, which has revealed just how vast and expansive this once 'lost land once was, many specialists are now claiming this was once the 'real heartland' of Europe. This enormous civilization is now believed to have dated back to some 8000 years ago, and that the land mass was submerged over a period of several thousand years, a submersion which began some 20,000 years prior. Dr Richard Bates of the Department of Earth Sciences at St Andrews, who organised the Drowned Landscapes exhibit, covering the finds within the UK, says the data reveals the human story behind Doggerland, a now submerged city of the North Sea that was once larger than many modern European countries. Could these discoveries reveal doggerland as the real lost city of Atlantis? Several hypotheses have placed the sunken island of Atlantis within modern northern Europe, most noted among such researchers is Olaus Rudbeck. Who suspected that Doggerland, as well as Viking Bergen Island, which is thought to have been flooded by a megatsunami following the Storegga slide in 6100 BC, is the real location of Atlantis, a proposition he put forward all the way back in the 16 hundreds. Some have proposed the Celtic Shelf as a possible location, and that there is certainly links to Ireland. Many places have been put forward for the possible location of the sunken city throughout the years, yet none have revealed ruins worthy of such claims, many of these areas being too small to have housed such an enormous city. Doggerland however, fits the bill, not only could it turn out to be the largest ancient civilization found on earth, but it also rests in a possible location, based on historical research, for the city of Atlantis, it was submerged at one point in its history, and it is revealing astonishing ruins of a once great and presently unknown civilization. Dr Bates, a geophysicist, said: ‘Doggerland was the real heartland of Europe until sea levels rose to give us the UK coastline of today. ‘We have speculated for years on the lost land's existence from bones dredged by fishermen all over the North Sea, but it's only since working with oil companies in the last few years that we have been able to re-create what this lost land looked like. ‘When the data was first being processed, I thought it unlikely to give us any useful information, however as more area was covered, it revealed a vast and complex landscape. ‘We have now been able to model its flora and fauna, build up a picture of the ancient people that lived there, and begin to understand some of the dramatic events that subsequently changed the land, including the sea rising and a devastating tsunami.’ The research project is a collaboration between St Andrews and the Universities of Aberdeen, Birmingham, Dundee and Wales Trinity St David. http://thesecretlandofatlantis.weebly.com/

Measuring the Greatest Ocean Depth The Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench is the deepest known point in Earth's oceans. In 2010 the United States Center for Coastal & Ocean Mapping measured the depth of the Challenger Deep at 10,994 meters (36,070 feet) below sea level with an estimated vertical accuracy of ± 40 meters. If Mount Everest, the highest mountain on Earth, were placed at this location it would be covered by over one mile of water. The first depth measurements in the Mariana Trench were made by the British survey ship HMS Challenger, which was used by the Royal Navy in 1875 to conduct research in the trench. The greatest depth that they recorded at that time was 8,184 meters (26,850 feet). In 1951, another Royal Navy vessel, also named the "HMS Challenger," returned to the area for additional measurements. They discovered an even deeper location with a depth of 10,900 meters (35,760 feet) determined by echo sounding. The Challenger Deep was named after the Royal Navy vessel that made these measurements. In 2009, sonar mapping done by researchers aboard the RV Kilo Moana, operated by the University of Hawaii, determined the depth to be 10,971 meters (35,994 feet) with a potential error of ± 22 meters. The most recent measurement, done in 2010, is the 10,994 meter ( ± 40 meter accuracy) depth reported at the top of this article, measured by the United States Center for Coastal & Ocean Mapping.

A 'crazy' artificial island in the North Sea that could supply renewable energy to 80 million people in Europe is set to open in 2027. Plans for the 2.3 square mile (6 square km) landmass suggest it will be surrounded by fields of offshore wind turbines and come with its own airstrip and harbour. The 'North Sea Wind Power Hub', which will be home to a small team of permanent staff, will send electricity via long-distance cables to Britain and the Netherlands, and later to Denmark, Germany, Norway and Belgium. Scroll down for video Dogger Bank, 78 miles (125 km) off the East Yorkshire coast, has been identified as a potential shallow and windy building site for the £1.3 billion ($1.75 billion) project. The site would include buildings for staff housing, an airport, a small network of roads, green spaces and even an artificial lake. Dutch power grid operator TenneT, the project's backer, recently released a report claiming the island will be billions of euros cheaper than conventional windfarms and international power cables. The project's backers claim it is an innovative way to make offshore wind power cheaper as available space around the coast fills up and turbines are pushed to more expensive spots further out to sea. Rob van der Hage, who manages TenneT's offshore wind grid development programme, told the Guardian: 'It's crucial for industry to continue with the cost reduction path. 'The big challenge we are facing towards 2030 and 2050 is onshore wind is hampered by local opposition and nearshore is nearly full. It's logical we are looking at areas further offshore.' Dogger Bank is relatively shallow with depths of between 15 and 36 metres, which is expected to reduce the cost of the ambitious project, which will rely on a vast and expensive network of underwater cables. The island would take up around 2-2.3 square miles (5-6 square km) to accommodate its equipment. Addressing the engineering challenge ahead, Mr Van der Hage said: 'Is it difficult? In the Netherlands, when we see a piece of water we want to build islands or land. We've been doing that for centuries. That is not the biggest challenge.' The plans have been drawn by a series of energy companies from Denmark, the Netherlands and Germany, including Energinet, a Danish state-owned energy operator. Discussions with other energy companies and industrial partners, who together will pay for the project, are ongoing. The next steps for the plan are set for completion later this year with a roadmap published in the Netherlands, which if successful could see the island operational be 2027, with the windfarms to follow, Mr Van der Hage said. Dutch power grid operator TenneT announced last March that Energinet was the first partner for its plan to create the offshore energy hub. In an interview at the time, Torben Glar Nielsen, Energinet's technical director, told the Independent: 'Maybe it sounds a bit crazy and science fiction-like but an island on Dogger Bank could make the wind power of the future a lot cheaper and more effective.' TenneT says that the large European electricity network is based on a 'hub and spoke' principle, and was designed to help the European Union to meet targets for cuts in its carbon dioxide emissions. Energinet.dk CEO Peder Østermark Andreasen said the project has the potential to lead to a 'further reduction in prices of grid connections and interconnections.' TenneT announced last year it is investing £21 billion ($26 billion) over the coming decade to support a number of offshore wind and onshore renewable projects currently in the pipeline. The company also wishes to improve interconnections between the Netherlands and Germany. The amount is an increase from the £19 billion ($23 billion) in a March 2016 forecast, after the Dutch government announced plans last autumn for a major acceleration in funding for renewable energy projects. The plans included permitting 5 gigawatts of new offshore turbine farms, for which TenneT will provide infrastructure. 'If we want to exploit all this green electricity in our Northwest European region to the full, we cannot do so without new power transmission links, both onshore and offshore,' CEO Mel Kroon said in a statement. 'The ongoing coupling of the European energy markets will lead to more convergence of electricity prices in the various European countries, and will make electricity more affordable for end users,' he said. TenneT reported 2016 underlying operating profit of 701 million euros on revenue of 3.23 billion euros ($3.41 billion), both down slightly from 2015, due to lower reimbursements for its services.

From home in Frankfurt, Germany to The Netherlands by the North Sea. The Netherlands, also known informally as Holland, is a densely populated country in Western Europe, also incorporating three island territories in the Caribbean. It is the main constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The European portion of the Netherlands borders Germany to the east, Belgium to the south, and the North Sea to the northwest, sharing maritime borders in the North Sea with Belgium, the United Kingdom, and Germany. The four largest cities in the Netherlands are Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht. Amsterdam is the country's capital, while The Hague holds the Dutch seat of parliament and government. The port of Rotterdam is the largest port in Europe and the world's largest outside east Asia. Utrecht is a central node for road and railway communications, commerce, and cultural events. "Netherlands" literally means "lower countries," influenced by its low land and flat geography, with only about 50% of its land exceeding one meter 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. With a population density of 412 people per km2 – 507 (January 2017) if water is excluded – the Netherlands is classified as a very densely populated country. Only Bangladesh, South Korea, and Taiwan have both a larger population and higher population density. Nevertheless, the Netherlands is the world's second-largest exporter of food and agricultural products, after the United States. This is partly due to the fertility of the soil and the mild climate. The Netherlands was the third country in the world to have an elected parliament, and since 1848 it has been governed as a parliamentary democracy and a constitutional monarchy, organized as a unitary state. The Netherlands has a long history of social tolerance and is generally regarded as a liberal country, having legalized abortion, prostitution and euthanasia, while maintaining a progressive drugs policy, having decriminalized cannabis in the country. Moreover, with the Netherlands being very accepting of the LGBT community, it became the world's first country to legalize same-sex marriage in 2001. The Netherlands is a founding member of the EU, Euro-zone, G-10, NATO, OECD and WTO; as well as being a part of the Schengen Area and the trilateral Benelux Union.

In this webinar we will focus on the continuous development and improvements in the operational tide-surge models of the Northwest European Shelf and in particular the North Sea and adjacent shallow seas and estuaries. For the Netherlands, accurate water-level forecasting in the coastal region is crucial, since large areas of the land lie below sea level. The importance of providing precise and reliable warnings is only enhanced by the presence of movable barriers such as the Eastern Scheldt Barrier and the Maeslant Barrier in the Rotterdam Waterway, which require the decision to close to be taken in advance and only when strictly necessary. In the past years a new generation tide-surge model (Dutch Continental Shelf Model version 6) has been developed covering the northwest European continental shelf, with a uniform cell size of about 1×1 nautical miles. During the model development many potential sources of error have been addressed, in particular through the use of parameter estimation techniques to decrease uncertainty in time-independent parameters. While this model has a tide representation that is substantially better than comparable models of this scale, increased model resolution in coastal regions (such as the Dutch estuaries and shallow seas like the Wadden Sea) is essential for improving the representation of higher harmonics and non-linear tide–surge interaction there. In addition a steady-state Kalman filter has been implemented to increase the predictive quality for the shorter lead times (up to approximately 12 h). We will show that Delft3D Flexible Mesh (Delft3D FM) produces accurate model results. In addition, developments and opportunities made possible by Delft3D FM are discussed. For example, by making use of the new flexibility that the unstructured grid allows, we have optimized the grid. This significantly reduces the computation time, while the accuracy remains of the same order. Finally, we will discuss on-going research including the development of a 3D transport model for the same area and a possibly baroclinically induced annual modulation of the M2 tide. The webinar was given by Mr. Firmijn Zijl (senior researcher, Deltares).

Old Frisian is a West Germanic language spoken between the 8th and 16th centuries in the area between the Rhine and Weser on the European North Sea coast. The Frisian settlers on the coast of South Jutland (today's Northern Friesland) also spoke Old Frisian but no medieval texts of this area are known. The language of the earlier inhabitants of the region between the Zuiderzee and Ems River (the Frisians mentioned by Tacitus) is attested in only a few personal names and place-names. Old Frisian evolved into Middle Frisian, spoken from the 16th to the 19th century. In the early Middle Ages, Frisia stretched from the area around Bruges, in what is now Belgium, to the Weser River in northern Germany. At the time, the Frisian language was spoken along the entire southern North Sea coast. This region is referred to as Greater Frisia or Frisia Magna, and many of the areas within it still treasure their Frisian heritage. However, by 1300, their territory had been pushed back to the Zuiderzee (now the IJsselmeer), and the Frisian language survives along the coast only as a substrate. The people from what are today northern Germany and Denmark who settled in England from about 400 onwards came from the same regions and spoke more or less the same language as the people who lived in Frisia (as medieval Friesland is usually called to distinguish it from the present-day regions with that name). Hence, a close relationship exists between Old Frisian and Old English. Music: Lantern's Lodge Source: vogala

The Chinese state-owned company CNOOC said it had discovered 250 million barrels of recoverable gas in its Glengorm project, east of Aberdeen. Further appraisal work is planned, but the company said it could be extracted using existing infrastructure. Friends of the Earth Scotland said the find was terrible news for the climate and that it should stay in the ground. Glengorm sits 118 miles (190km) east of Aberdeen, close to Total's Elgin-Franklin and Culzean fields, and could be tied back to one of their platforms. Total owns a 25% stake in the Glengorm field. Xie Yuhong, of CNOOC, said the company was "looking forward to further appraisal". Still life in mature waters Kevin McLachlan, of Total, added: "Glengorm is another great success for Total in the North Sea, with results at the top end of expectations and a high condensate yield in addition to the gas. "Our strong position in the region will enable us to leverage existing infrastructures nearby and optimise the development of this discovery. "Glengorm is an achievement that demonstrates our capacity to create value in a mature environment thanks to our in-depth understanding of the basin." Analysts Wood Mackenzie described the find as the largest in the North Sea since the Culzean field was discovered in 2008. Senior analyst Kevin Swann said: "There is a lot of hype around frontier areas like West of Shetland, where Total discovered the Glendronach field last year. But Glengorm is in the Central North Sea and this find shows there is still life in some of the more mature UK waters." Environmental groups have criticised the discovery which, they say, will further contribute to climate change. They want energy companies to leave oil and gas in the ground and focus instead on renewable sources. Climate destruction Caroline Rance, from Friends of the Earth Scotland, said: "It's a disgrace that oil and gas exploration is still going ahead in the seas off Scotland. "It's high time our governments stopped supporting fossil fuel development, and get serious about planning a just transition away from this industry. "These companies know all too well that their business is built on the destruction of the climate, which is devastating for millions of people around the world but they continue to seek profit from driving this catastrophe." The Oil and Gas Authority has welcomed the discover, and said it demonstrated the considerable potential the industry still had to offer. Chief executive Andy Samuel said: "This is very exciting news. Glengorm was first mapped as a prospect around 20 years ago and it is great to see CNOOC taking up the exploration opportunity and completing a difficult high-pressure, high-temperature exploration well. "Our official estimate is that there still remains between 10 and 20 billion barrels plus to be recovered, so there is every chance of yet more significant finds, provided industry can increase exploration drilling and capitalise on the real value to be had here in the UK."

Alex Salmond argued in the run up to Scottish independence referendum that an independent Scotland would have a strong economy on the back of its oil and gas resources. The price of North Sea oil has plummeted since the vote and a debate has erupted on the use of onshore hydraulic fracturing. In light of these developments, IBTimes UK spoke to the former SNP leader about North Sea oil and gas, fracking and energy in Scotland.

This animation shows the global advance and retreat of daily snow cover along with daily sea ice surface temperature over the Northern Hemisphere from September 2002 through May 2003. The snow cover was measured by the MODIS instrument on the Terra satellite, while the sea ice surface temperature was measured by the MODIS instrument on the Aqua satellite. Since these instruments cannot take measurements through clouds, in cloud-covered regions or areas with suspect data quality, the prior day's value is retained until a valid data reading is obtained. This visualization designates an area as covered by snow when the instrument takes a valid measurement showing greater than ~50% snow coverage in that area. This area is assumed to be snow covered until the instrument takes a valid measurement showing less than 40% snow coverage in that same area. A color bar indicates the sea ice surface temperature values. The satellite instruments are unable to collect data through darkness. The region in polar darkness is shown as a gray cap over the pole that grows and shrinks seasonally. A date slider indicates the progression of time. SeaWiFS Land Reflectance shows the seasonal changes in land cover.

But when an Antarctic ice shelf the size of Manhattan collapsed in less than a month in 2002, it shocked scientists and raised the alarming possibility that Antarctica may be headed for a meltdown. Even a 10 percent loss of Antarctica's ice would cause catastrophic flooding of coastal cities unlike any seen before in human history. What are the chances of a widespread melt? "Secrets Beneath the Ice" explores whether Antarctica's climate past can offer clues to what may happen. NOVA follows a state-of-the-art expedition that is drilling three-quarters of a mile into the Antarctic seafloor. The drill is recovering rock cores that reveal intimate details of climate and fauna from a time in the distant past when the Earth was just a few degrees warmer than it is today. As researchers grapple with the harshest conditions on the planet, they discover astonishing new clues about Antarctica's past—clues that carry ominous implications for coastal cities around the globe. documentary 2018, documentary music, documentary space, documentary song, documentary war, documentary crime, documentary channel, documentary ww2, documentary science, documentary hd, documentary, documentary now, documentary about, documentary ancient, documentary aliens, documentary animal, documentary america, documentary art, documentary about god, documentary amazon, documentary about love, documentary ai, a documentary film, a documentary about depression, a documentary about life, a documentary story of the buddha's life, a documentary of prostitution area in bangladesh, a documentary about space, a documentary about the important things, a documentary about canada, a documentary on school dress code, a documentary about animals, documentary bbc, documentary best, documentary bible, documentary bigfoot, documentary brain, documentary business, documentary bangla, documentary babies, documentary brazil, documentary birds, max b documentary, proxima b documentary, r&b documentary, group b documentary, doe b documentary, lil b documentary, mel b documentary, plan b documentary, bun b documentary, b.o.b documentary, documentary china, documentary cars, documentary columbine, documentary cia, documentary children, documentary cold war, documentary culture, documentary cats, documentary comedy, pimp c documentary, andy c documentary, b b c documentary, vitamin c documentary, hep c documentary, d.o.c documentary, hepatitis c documentary, lady c documentary, paul c documentary, washington d.c documentary, documentary death, documentary demons, documentary disaster, documentary dubai, documentary disease, documentary dreams, documentary discovery, documentary dw, documentary documentary, documentary dmt, tenacious d documentary, heavy d documentary, vitamin d documentary, keefe d documentary, initial d documentary, winky d documentary, chuck d documentary, stevie hyper d documentary, lavish d documentary, 1st sfod-d documentary, documentary earth, documentary egypt, documentary economy, documentary eminem, documentary evil, documentary editing, documentary ethiopia, documentary el chapo, documentary english, documentary elon musk, e documentary series boulevard of broken dreams, e documentary selena gomez, eazy e documentary, a&e documentary full episodes, eazy e documentary 2015, jonbenet a&e documentary, poi e documentary, a&e documentary serial killers, maersk triple e documentary, formula e documentary, documentary food, documentary for kids, documentary films, documentary future, documentary fbi, documentary fish, documentary funny, documentary fast, documentary fat, documentary fashion, b.m.f documentary, terminal f documentary, christiane f documentary, f 35 documentary, f 22 raptor documentary, f-14 tomcat documentary, f-16 documentary, f 15 documentary, f scott fitzgerald documentary, f 18 documentary, documentary gangs, documentary ghost, documentary god, documentary gay, documentary guns, documentary gangland, documentary government, documentary greece, documentary giants, documentary gucci, king lil g documentary, warren g documentary, triple g documentary, b.g documentary, kap g documentary, becky g documentary, kenny g documentary, p&g documentary, tom g documentary, ali g documentary, documentary hindi,

Wadden Sea National Park is an excellent example of a coastal wetland between Den Helder in the Netherlands and Esbjerg in Denmark. It is the largest unbroken stretch of intertidal mudflats in the world, and the perfect example of a coastal wetland with high biological, hydrological and ecological importance, shared between three countries: Germany, the Netherlands, and Denmark. The area is of international importance being a nursery of marine life, a resting, moulting and feeding area for several millions of migratory birds, and a habitat for thousands of birds, seals and many other species. The Wadden Sea, an estuary of the North Sea, has a total area of about 8000 square km. It is the world's biggest coherent habitat of its kind and one of the last unspoiled estuaries in Europe. There are many varied and extensive habitats in the Wadden Sea. This important estuary includes the salt marshes along the coast line as well as the islands and dunes. The mud flats consist of the areas which get flooded twice a day and then fall dry again, and of the channel system of tideways, channels and shipping channels between the islands, which are responsible for the flooding and for the draining. The mud flats are known for their very low inclination which is usually less than 1 meter of difference in altitude on a 1000 meter long stretch. About fifty islands and islets protect the shallow Wadden Sea. This 28 minutes documentary is part of the tv-series WONDERS of WILDERNESS and is available on DVD or broadcast video. The 12-part series colourfully introduces a dozen of the worlds most important national parks with their rich flora, fauna and awe-inspiring geological wonders. The series demonstrates the wisdom of the national park founders who made it possible to create safe havens for plant and animal life. They led the way in teaching us how vital it is to protect our soil, air and water from pollution both for ourselves and for future generations. © and information at WWW.FAUNAFILM.NL

It was founded by the Parliament of Schleswig-Holstein on 1 October 1985 by the National Park Act of 22 July 1985 and expanded significantly in 1999. Together with the Lower Saxon Wadden Sea National Park, the Hamburg Wadden Sea National Park and those parts of Elbe estuary which are not nature reserves, it forms the German part of the Wadden Sea. The national park extends from the German-Danish maritime border in the north down to the Elbe estuary in the south. In the North Frisian area, it includes the mudflats around the geest-based and marsh islands and the Halligen (undyked islands). There the mudflats are 40 km wide in places. Further south lie areas of mudflats which contain particularly large sandbanks. In addition to the plants and animals that are typical of the entire Wadden Sea, especially large numbers of porpoise, shelduck and eelgrass may be seen in the Schleswig-Holstein part. With an area of 4410 km ² it is by far the largest national park in Germany. Some 68% of its area is permanently under water and 30% is periodically dry. The land element consists mainly of salt marshes. Since 1990, the national park, including the North Frisian Halligen, has been designated as a UNESCO recognised biosphere. Together with other German and Dutch Wadden Sea areas it became a UNESCO World Heritage Site on 26 June 2009.

Areas covered: Climb up to Mt Mitchell and then down to Black Mtn campground Specifically: Day 12 - Craggy Gardens to Lower Creek on the foot of Mt Mitchell Day 13 - Lower Creek to Mt Mitchell, then down to Black Mountain campground Section comments: After spending a nice long weekend at home, I got back on trail just north of Asheville on the Blue Ridge Parkway at Cravens Gap. This entire section included a fair amount of elevation gains as I not only had to get up Mt Mitchell, but also had to climb and then drop back down various knobs & mountain ridges along the way. Day 11 had me on trail & steadily climbing. I passed multiple day hikers out for a Sunday stroll, enjoying the nice weather and views. I made it to the Craggy Garden visitor center, where I loaded up 4 liters of water and watched the sunset. It was beautiful. I then hit the trail for less than a 1 mile to get onto national forest land & setup my hammock on the side of a hill maybe 10' from the trail. Not the best spot but it worked just fine. Day 12 I enjoyed watching the clouds from various knobs & capturing some nice time lapses. But it was a tough day, at least mentally. I had convinced myself to pick up the pace, and when the trail was rough & not allowing for that, I was a bit down on how long it was taking. I finally got to the Buncoombe Horse trail near Mt Mitchell State park, which was a flat, level old road - so it was a nice way to finish the day. I camped that night near Lower Creek, lose to Commissary Hill. I later saw warnings about bear activity in the area but never had any problem. I did get some pretty strong wind and rain that night, which thankfully subsided by the morning. Day 13 I climbed up Mt Mitchell, which of course was windy & clouded in, but still alive with energy & the force the nature. I had hoped to get a coffee at the gift shop up top but that was closed. I hustled down to Black Mountain campground, as rain was in the forecast. I got a walk-in spot, and took a nice hot shower. I later met some fellow Hoosiers from Indiana and they shared some hot dogs while we sat around a campfire. Later than night, it poured, for the 2nd night in a row. The next 2 nights were forecasted for even heavier rain, as hurricane Michael rolled in from the south. So once again, even though I had the food to continue on, I decided to call in the cavalry to pick me up. My good friend, who I had exchanged a few messages with about the MST, offered to pick me up so I jumped on it.

IMAGINARIUM is a permanent installation, designed, produced and realised by artist/photographer Britt Guns. Similar to herbariums, aquariums or terrariums, an Imaginarium is a microworld, but instead of plants or animals, this world contains images, more specifically images from the past, precious memories collected through interviews with the inhabitants of an elderly home for patients with dementia. When asked what it is they miss most, many talked about youth and / or holiday experiences linked to specific places and areas's. The artist translated these into generic projection screens that form windows to the past placed in the corridors of the institution. This episode recalls the sea side of Oostende (Mer du nord).
