Zeeland is a province of the Netherlands, located in the south-west of the country. It consists of a number of islands along the North Sea and a strip of land bordering Belgium.

Large parts of Zeeland are below sea level, kept dry by dikes. Its area is about 2930 km², of which almost 1140 km² is water.

In fact, the province of Zeeland is actually a large river delta situated at the mouth of several major rivers. The main river is the Scheldt, seen here as it discharges tan sediments into the sea.
