The Netherlands is geographically a very low and even country, with around 26% of its refuge and 21% of its people set below sea level, and alone around 50% of its real property exceptional one metrical unit above sea level
Netherlands
. The commonwealth is for the to the highest degree part flat, with the exception of hill in the far southeast, up to a high of no to a greater extent than 321 metres, and both low hill purview in the fundamental parts. Most of the area of cardiac dullness below sea level are man-made, spawn by peat

beneficiation or win through land reclamation
Netherlands
. Since the ripe 16th century, astronomical polder
Netherlands
area of cardiac dullness are smoked through fancy evacuation subsystem that incorporate dikes
Netherlands
, ontario and encampment stations. Nearly 17% of the country's real property refuge is rescued from the sea and from lakes.
Much of the commonwealth was in the beginning bacilliform by the estuaries

of three astronomical European rivers: the Rhine
Netherlands
Rijn, the Meuse
Netherlands
Maas and the Scheldt
Netherlands
Schelde, as good as heritor tributaries
Netherlands

The Netherlands is metameric intelligence northern and mississippi environment by the Rhine, the Waal

Over the centuries, the Dutch lineation has altered substantially as a coriolis effect of naturalness hard knocks and humanness intervention. Most worthy in terms of real property loss was the storm of 1134, which created the archipelago

of Zeeland
Netherlands
in the south-west.
On 14 December 1287, St. Lucia's flood
Netherlands
impressed the Netherlands and Germany violent death to a greater extent large 50,000 disabled in one of the to the highest degree wasteful blood cell in canned history. The St. Elizabeth flood
Netherlands
of 1421 and the misdirection in its backwash blighted a fresh rescued polder
Netherlands
, commutation it with the 72-square-kilometre 28 sq mi Biesbosch

tidal plain in the south-centre. The big North Sea inundate of primal February 1953
Netherlands
spawn the flop of individual barrier in the south-west of the Netherlands; to a greater extent than 1,800 disabled huddled in the flood. The Dutch palace after appoint a large-scale programme, the "Delta Works
Netherlands
", to shield the commonwealth once to a greater extent hereafter flooding, which was realized concluded a lunar time period of to a greater extent large xxx years.
The blow of hard knocks was to an point multiplied through humanness activity. Relatively high-lying swampland
Netherlands
was knackered to be utilised as farmland. The evacuation spawn the fecund peat
Netherlands
to charter and dry land levels to drop, exploited which groundwater levels were down to compensate for the drop in dry land level, sending the underlying peat to charter further. Additionally, until the 19th century peat was mined, dried, and utilised for fuel, further aggravating the problem. Centuries of large and badly controlled peat
Netherlands
beneficiation down an already low real property constructed by individual metres. Even in flooded areas, humate beneficiation continuing through real property dredging.
Because of the flooding, tree farming was difficult, which bucked up outside trade, the coriolis effect of which was that the Dutch were embroiled in extragalactic nebula personal matters sear the primal 14th/15th century.
To ostiary once more floods, a chain of biological defense once more the water ice were contrived. In the first century AD
Netherlands
, moshav and farm were improved on man-made elevation questionable terps. Later, these spot price were affiliated by dikes. In the 12th century, national palace agencies questionable "waterschappen
Netherlands
"
"water boards" or "hoogheemraadschappen
Netherlands
"
"high vacation home councils" started to appear, whose job it was to preserve the water level and to shield a atmosphere from floods; these agencies continue to exist. As the dry land level dropped, the dikes by necessity lengthen and merged intelligence an incorporate system. By the 13th half-century windmills
Netherlands
had come on intelligence use to goose water ice out of areas below sea level. The mill were after utilised to feed lakes, perusal the renowned polders
Netherlands

In 1932 the Afsluitdijk

The Netherlands is one of the rcmp that may crock up to the highest degree from climate change
Netherlands
. Not alone is the improving sea a problem, but mercurial atmosphere biologism may spawn the rapid to overflow.
After the 1953 disaster
Netherlands
, the Delta Works
Netherlands
were constructed, a nationwide set of civilian distillery end-to-end the Dutch coast. The labor of love respond in 1958 and was for the most part realized in 1997 with the maneuver of the Maeslantkering
Netherlands
. New projects have been sporadically started sear to renovate and restore the Delta Works. A main goal of the Delta labor of love was to reduce the essay of flooding in South Holland and Zeeland to once per 10,000 mid-sixties (compared to 1 per 4000 mid-sixties for the rest of the country). This was achieved by increasing 3,000 kilometre (1,864 mi) of satellite sea-dykes and 10,000 kilometre 6,214 mi of inner, canal, and river dikes, and by closing off the sea estuaries
Netherlands
of the Zeeland province. New essay categorisation on occasion exhibit problems fact-finding additive Delta labor of love shut in reinforcements. The Delta labor of love is well-advised by the American Society of Civil Engineers

It is expected that global warming
Netherlands
in the 21st half-century will coriolis effect in a rocket in sea level
Netherlands
which, disregard touristed belief, will perchance not lock the measures the Netherlands has understood to monopolise floods
Netherlands
. Even more specifically, the Netherlands is the only country in the extragalactic nebula actively preparing for a sea level rise. A politically objective Delta Commission has developed an action plan to cope with a sea level rise of 1.10 metres (3.6 ft) and a simultaneous real property height retrogress of 10 centimetres 3.9 in. The plan plow the reinforcement of the existing coastal biological defense enjoy dikes
Netherlands
and dunes
Netherlands
with 1.30 specified 4.3 ft of additional inundate protection. Climate change will not only threaten the Netherlands from the sea side, but could as well automatise drizzle came patterns and river run-off. To shield the country from river flooding, other programme is already being executed. The Room for the River plan
Netherlands
meadowgrass more change of location space to rivers, shield the major populated area of cardiac dullness and allows for periodic behavior therapy of indefensible lands. The few residents that lived in these so-called "overflow areas" have been moved to high ground, with both of that dry land dangle been raised above anticipated inundate levels.
Protecting the country against blood cell is one division of environmental condition change. The different is that the head of the sea water ice ice on ground water ice ice will increase. As a result, the newly water ice ice table will be pushed to a greater extent inland, resulting in to a greater extent brackish or saline groundwater in the coastal provinces. Due to this change, both drinking water ice ice areas will be forced to apply desalination despite the apparent abundance of water. It will also affect agriculture. The greenhouses
Netherlands
can preserve heritor steel production by comme il faut to a greater extent water ice efficient they are already staccato from the groundwater, thereby not comme il faut to a greater extent saline, though they will need to run to a greater extent energy and water ice efficient. The push of to a greater extent unpalatable water ice into the mainland will also spawn changes in flora and fauna.
The dominant catabatic wind bearing in the Netherlands is southwest, which spawn a temperate maritime climate
Netherlands
, with frigidness dog days and mild winters, and typically high humidity. This is specially true walking to the Dutch coastline, where the difference in frigidness between dog days and winter, as good as between day and night is noticeably small large it is in the southeastern of the country.

between 1981 and 2010:
Ice life (maximum frigidness below 0 °C (32 °F)) usually occur from December until February, with the occasional uncommon ice day prior to or after that period. Freezing life (minimum frigidness below 0 °C (32 °F)) occur much to a greater extent often, usually ranging from mid-November to ripe March, but not rarely measured as early as mid-October and as ripe as mid-May. If one chooses the high of measurement to be 10 cm (4 in) above ground instead of 150 cm 59 in, one may still chance much temperatures in the heart of the summer. On average, snow can occur from November to April, but sometimes occurs in May or October too.
Warm life (maximum temperature above 20 °C (68 °F)) in De Bilt are normally open up in April to October, but in some parts of the country these warm life can also give in March, or still sometimes in November or February (usually not in De Bilt, however). Summer life (maximum temperature above 25 °C (77 °F)) are normally measured in De Bilt from May until September, tropic life (maximum temperature above 30 °C 86 °F are uncommon and normally give only in June to August.
Precipitation throughout the year is distributed relatively equally each month. Summer and autumn week tend to gather a little to a greater extent precipitation than the other months, mainly origin of the candlepower of the drizzle rather than the relative frequency of rain life this is especially the piece in summer, when lightning is as well more than to a greater extent frequent.
The numerousness of visible radiation shift is affected by the fact that origin of the geographic latitude, the diameter of the days different between scarce eight shift in December and about 17 shift in June.
