Schepen met een platte bodem bezitten nagenoeg geen kiel. De kiel bij een kielschip zorgt ervoor dat de boot niet met de wind mee drift (driftbeperking). Platbodems hebben in plaats van een kiel zijzwaarden. Hier zeilt een boot met de zijzwaard gedeeltelijk onder water gestoken. Dat zorgt ervoor dat het schip niet door de wind opzij wordt gezet maar effectiever voorwaarts zeilt. Omdat platbodems weinig diepgang hebben kunnen ze makkelijk droogvallen.

    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. With vast areas of original wetland wilderness, the Dutch have reshaped it into their minutely controlled country, with continuous innovations in ways to control and make use of these lands.

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

Nederlandse vaarwegennet is 5046 km lang. Nederland en water zijn dus onlosmakelijk met elkaar verbonden. Waar water is, zijn boten. Historische zeilvaartuigen zijn o.a. de platbodems. Schepen met een platte bodem bezitten nagenoeg geen kiel. De kiel bij een kielschip zorgt ervoor dat de boot niet met de wind mee drift (driftbeperking). Platbodems hebben in plaats van een kiel zijzwaarden. Hier zeilt een boot met de zijzwaard gedeeltelijk onder water gestoken. Dat zorgt ervoor dat het schip niet door de wind opzij wordt gezet maar effectiever voorwaarts zeilt. Omdat platbodems weinig diepgang hebben kunnen ze makkelijk droogvallen. Op de achtergrond zie je Terschelling. The Dutch waterway network is 5046 km long. The Netherlands and water are so inextricably linked. Where water is, are boats. Historic sailing vessels include the flat-bottomed boats. Ships with a flat bottom possess virtually no keel. The keel helps the ship not to drift sideways. A Flat-bottomed sailing boat has instead of a keel leeboards. Here sails a flat-bottomed boat with the leeboard partly under water (deployed). That ensures that the ship is not being put aside by the wind, but more effective sails forward. Because the flat bottom sailing boat has little depth, it enables the boat at low tide, as long as nature isn't harmed, to dry out. In the back you see isle of Terschelling.

As land continues to shrink and seal-level rises unabated, Dutch people have come up with a clever design solution to beat the problem. Architects in Netherlands are building houses on water. These floating houses have all the comforts of a house built on land. In recent times, many floating neighbourhoods have sprung up in harbours across the country. But can these be implemented in other parts of the world? Video Credits: AP Music: Big Bang Fuzz

The dramatic row between the Dutch government and Turkey has escalated. It is now emerging that Turkey's Family and Social Affairs Minister Fatma Kaya will travel to the Dutch city of Rotterdam by land, after the Dutch government revoked the landing permission of Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu's plane. Kaya was due to address Turkish community members in the eastern Dutch towns as well Germany's Cologne. The Dutch government has officially banned Cavusoglu from campaigning there for Turkey's referendum next month. In retalition, Turkey has summoned the Dutch ambassador in Ankara to the foreign ministry. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has also issued a sharp rebuke, saying that the Netherlands' behavior was reminiscent of Nazism. He has vowed to retaliate.

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. With vast areas of original wetland wilderness, the Dutch have reshaped it into their minutely controlled country, with continuous innovations in ways to control and make use of these lands.
