How The Dutch Dug Up Their Country From The Sea
The Dutch have a saying: “God created the world, but the Dutch created the Netherlands”. Today we will see why. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Like & Share! Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/averythingchannel/ Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/AveryThing ----------------------------------------------------------------------- The Dutch polders are the largest land reclamation projects in the world, a true marvel of engineering which added nearly 20% of land to the country, and its fertile land makes the Netherlands the second largest exporter of food in the world. In the last episode we looked at how a large dike was constructed to block seawater from flooding the inner regions of the netherlands. In this episode we’re going to look at how parts of this inland water area was drained and turned into fertile land. While this is part of a series, you don’t need to have watched the first episode to understand this one. I try to make my videos as stand-alone as I can. Ever since the 16th century, large areas of land have been reclaimed from the sea and lakes, amounting to over 50% of the country’s current land area if you include every lake ever laid dry. The process of land reclamation in the Netherlands is mainly done through Poldering. It is the process of draining water from a lake or by placing dikes around an area of water and THEN draining it until you are left with very fertile land. And this is what Lely proposed: build a dike to stop the sea water, then build smaller dikes inside this newly formed lake, and one-by-one drain the water. This land was rich in clay, could be settled, and could be farmed, which in turn meant that the Dutch government could tax them, and make A LOT of money.

Philippines Land Reclamation
The Philippines is a small country with a large population. This makes land a valuable commodity and relatively expensive. Cities often fill in coastal areas with rock taken from the mountains to give them more land for public use. Large areas near Cebu City are built on reclaimed land and other cities, such as Naga, have used reclaimed land for public use. Over the past few years Compostela has been slowly building such a public use area on land reclaimed from the sea. The Compostela Fiesta and Queseo Fiesta were both able to put this land to good use this year.

The polder - unique landscape under sea level
The Netherlands is known for its polders. Approximately one third of the Netherlands lies under sea level. Dams, dikes and sluices keep the water out, and pumping stations ensure that the groundwater remains at safe levels. This water level is expressed NAP (Normaal Amsterdams Peil -- Normal Amsterdam Water Level).

Holland's Barriers to The Sea
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.

The Palm Island, Dubai UAE - Megastructure Development
An awe-inspiring engineering feat, Dubai Palm Islands is definitely the largest artificial islands on earth. These Islands are three man made islands in the form of massive palm trees connected to the beaches of Dubai. The first island is the Palm Jumeirah, Jebel Ali Palm second and the third is the Palm Deira which is the biggest of them all. This artificial archipelago located off the coastline of United Arab Emirates in Persian Gulf. Dubai islands project was commissioned by Sheikh Mohammed in an effort to maximize beachfront property. Dubai's palm tree-shaped resort island on land built from the sea will contribute 120 km of beaches. Aside from the construction of the ambitious expansion, there is also the problem of constructing a mini city, which consists of 4,500 high-end residential homes, miles of roads, luxurious hotels and many amenities that will require basic human resources including electricity, safe drinking water and many more. This enormous project will position Dubai as one of the top tourist destinations in the world. I will tell you why these islands have appeared and that they must satisfy. Dubai is an emirate that open sea about 50 km (an estimate) and the sites required for building projects are on the beach. To view course and especially to "park" in front of the yacht's property or even assembly. Well when the beach was not available, and demand persists, the beach had invented. And it appeared artificial islands. Hence so sophisticated forms of the islands: they had to provide a larger opening to the ocean. This new concept quickly caught on. 'Only a' product 'high-end, the latest wrinkle in the most creative developers metropolis. A new source of land, location of the trick of the planet Earth! The job went, the two islands were settled immediately, with mixed development, spectacular, exorbitant, and finally in Dubai's specific style ... In parallel to the World archipelago started building and other projects are still on the drawing board Nakheel, developer. But crisis compels us to winter a little ... Where is the dream of similar islands: In Lebanon, wants to build a cedar shaped islands, the symbol of this country. Russia wants to try an island / an archipelago in Black in Sochi at the 2014 Olympics, at least that is speaking through the past years. Also in Japan there are several large airports built on artificial islands. The Palm Islands are artificial peninsulas constructed of sand dredged from the bottom of the Persian Gulf by the Belgian company Jan De Nul and the Dutch company Van Oord. The sand is sprayed by the dredging ships, which are guided by DGPS, onto the required area in a process known as rain-bowing because of the arcs in the air when the sand is sprayed. The outer edge of each Palm's encircling crescent is a large rock breakwater. The breakwater of the Palm Jumeirah has over seven million tons of rock. The Palm Islands are an artificial archipelago (islands) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Major commercial and residential infrastructures will be constructed by Nakheel Properties, a property developer in The UAE. The Belgian and Dutch dredging and marine contractors, Jan De Nul and Van Oord, some of the world's specialists in land reclamation, were hired to complete construction. The islands are the Palm Jumeirah, the Palm Jebel Ali and the Palm Deira. Each settlement will be in the shape of a palm tree, topped with a crescent. The settlements will have a large number of residential, leisure and entertainment centers. The Palm Islands are located off the coast of The UAE in the Persian Gulf and will add 520 kilometers of beaches to the city of Dubai. The first two islands will comprise of approximately 100 million cubic meters of rock and sand. The Palm Deira will be composed of approximately one billion cubic meters of rock and sand. All materials will be quarried in The UAE. Among the three islands, there will be over 100 luxury hotels, exclusive residential beach side villas and apartments, marinas, water theme parks, restaurants, shopping malls, sports facilities and health spas. The creation of the Palm Jumeirah began in June 2001. Shortly after, the Palm Jebel Ali was announced and reclamation work began. The Palm Deira is planned to have a surface area of 46.35 square kilometers and was announced for development in October 2004. GC Privé ~ A world of luxury www.gcprive.com

A process of increasing the amount of usable land. Reasons for land reclamation. -increasing demand of land -growing world population -need for recreational facilities Ways to increase land -Bringing unused land (etc. hills, deserts, forests) into use. -creating new land by sea -restoring damaged lands FOR MORE INFO... Visit this website:www.uweb/waterland.shtml ,What is Empoldering Empoldering refers to the creation of polders. A polder is a piece of land in a low lying area reclaimed from a body of water by building dikes and by drainage. Empoldering can be carried out in coastal and inland areas such as lakes. Features of polders Polders are enclosed by dikes to keep out the sea. To prevent the polders from being waterlogged, they are managed by drainage canals and pumps. Dikes protect the polder from erosion Drainage canals carry away excess water from the polders ,Major characteristic on polders reclaimed in the 17th century in north of Amsterdam lowest lying polders, "droogmakerijen", low constant water levels are maintained because of the intensive agricultural use, which is possible because these polders have a clay soil. higher lying polders, "veenweides" or peat pastures, relatively high constant water levels are maintained.Otherwise, the peat oxidises and the land surface subsides even more. Peat pastures are used for extensive agriculture. A typical pasture area with high water levels and extensiveagriculture. ,3)Empoldering in the Netherlands First, a dike is constructed around the area to be reclaimed to keep water from coming in. The water in the reclaim area is replaced with freshwater. Secondly, pumps and drainage canals is used to drain the area. Thirdly, reeds are sown to help the soil absorb excess water in the soil. Three years later, the reeds are burnt. Drainage pipes are constructed. Ploughs are used till mix the fertile ash into the soil. After around 15 years, the polder can be used for growing crops, building houses and constructing roads. Method Of Empoldering ,Dam Reclaimed Area Of Netherlands Reclaimed land Zuider Zee ,Netherlands In 1986, the Netherlands did not carve out the province from already existing land nor did they annex the territory of their neighbours - Germany and Belgium. The Netherlands actually grew. The Frisians, who first settled in the Netherlands began to build the terpen, the first dykes to hold back the water. In 1287 the terpen that had held back the North Sea failed and water flooded the country. -A new bay called Zuider zee was created over the former farmland. - The Dutch worked to slowly push back the water of the Zuiderzee, building dykes and creating polders. - Once the dykes were built, canals & pumps were used to drain the land. -From the 1200s, windmills were used to pump excess water off the fertile soil; today, most of the windmills have been replaced with electricity- and diesel-driven pumps. About ,Netherlands Then, storms and floods in 1916 provided the impetus for the Dutch to start a major project to reclaim the Zuider Zee. From 1927 to 1932, a 30.5 km long dyke called Afsluitdijk (the Barrier Dyke) was built; turning the Zuider Zee into the IJsselmeer, a freshwater lake. The Zuider Zee could not accommodate the bigger sailing ships that had been just developed. With the Zuider Zee reclamation project, the area had many uses. Portions of the lake were enclosed by dikes and drained to form polders. They were then used for housing, agriculture and recreational purposes. The Ijssel Lake now serves as a freshwater reservoir, supplying water for the irrigation. Further protective dykes and works were built, reclaiming the land of the IJsse

Reclaiming, using, and protecting wetlands, how the Dutch created the Netherlands
Waterloo World Wetlands Day Public Lecture In commemoration of the Ramsar agreement, the Ecohydrology Research Group and Faculty of Science hosted a public lecture featuring Dr. Jos Verhoeven, an expert on the diversity and functioning of wetland ecosystems. The Netherlands is the common delta of three major rivers. Originally a vast expanse of salt marshes, flood plains, swamps and large bogs, the Dutch began to live there on dwelling mounds 2000 years ago.

Dutch War Against The Sea: The Afsluitdijk -  Longest Dam In Europe
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.

China to expand land reclamation activities in South China Sea, say experts
China to expand land reclamation activities in South China Sea, say experts SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z Source video: http://www.straitstimes.com/asia/east-asia/china-to-expand-land-reclamation-activities-in-south-china-sea-say-experts G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- BEIJING - China is focused on the establishment of civil infrastructure on islands in the South China Sea rather than military installations, and will expand land reclamation activities, according to Chinese experts. "Most of the construction on islands in the South China Sea was completed in 2015 and the pace then slowed. Civilian facility construction is the major focus of the South China Sea islands building and the portion of defence deployment is relatively small," Mr Chen Xiangmiao, a research fellow at the National Institute for the South China Sea, told the Global Times on Monday (Feb 5). Mr Chen said some of the islands were likely to be expanded in future through more dredgging. He also noted that the easing of tensions between China and South-east Asian countries such as the Philippines had provided a golden opportunity for China to upgrade these areas. According to another expert, Dr Zhuang Guotu, the head of Xiamen University's Southeast Asian Studies Centre, foreign media was hyping China's construction in the South China Sea. "China has the right to build whatever it needs within its territory," Dr Zhuang said, adding that China's military deployments in the South China Sea were to defend its security and interests, rather than military expansion. Both Dr Zhuang and Mr Chen warned that the US was the biggest threat to stability in the South China Sea . "The US, Australia, Japan and other allies will constantly provoke China over this issue and that will incite other neighbouring South China Sea countries to do the same," Dr Zhuang said. US guided missile destroyer USS Hopper came within 12 nautical miles of Scarborough Shoal, also known as Huangyan Island, in January, according to reports. China's South China Sea construction projects covered about 290,000 square metres in 2017, according to a report released in December on a website run by the Nation... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

South China Sea disputes: China’s land reclamation in the Spratlys grows, says Pentagon - TomoNews
BEIJING — A new Pentagon report released on Thursday says that China’s reclamation efforts in the Spratly Islands has grown dramatically over the last few months, and at a rate far faster than earlier this year. Previous estimates that China has reclaimed 2,000 acres since December 2013 are wrong, the Pentagon report says, and the real amount is around 2,900 acres. According to the Pentagon, China has reclaimed more land in the past 20 months than the other claimants combined over the past 40 years. China said in early August that it has halted its reclamation efforts in the island chain, although many countries question these claims. On Fiery Cross Reef, China has built an airstrip that the country could use as an alternative to an aircraft carrier. Reuters reports that the 3,000-metre-long runway will most likely be operational by the end of this year. At many of the reclamation sites in the Spratlys, China has also built channels and berthing areas for large ships. The new Pentagon report, titled “The Asia-Pacific Maritime Security Strategy,” was required by Congress ahead of a 2015 defense bill. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.
