Netherlands - April 14th, 2010

The Netherlands, also known as Holland, are located in northwestern Europe. The country has an area of 16,040 sq mi (41,543 sq km) and a population (2009 est.) of around 16,522,000. The capital is Amsterdam.

The Netherlands’ southern and eastern region consists mostly of plains and a few high ridges; its western and northern region is lower and includes polders on the site of the Zuiderzee and the common delta of the Rhine, Meuse, and Schelde rivers. Coastal areas are almost completely below sea level and are protected by dunes and artificial dikes. Here, sediments are present in these low coastal areas.
