good and bad things about different sea defences.
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 auto...

amazing animals with incredible defensive powers and abilities in the wild Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg For copyright matters please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org We’ve all heard the saying that it’s a jungle out there – or that it’s a dog eat dog world. Yes, the world can be a tough place, especially if you’re a non-human animal. Insects have to look out for birds and snakes. Birds and snakes need to look out for bigger birds and snakes. And don’t even get us started on what goes on under the sea. It’s nothing like what Disney says it is. Whether in air, on land or under the sea, nature has given its creatures an array of defenses to give them a chance at survival. Bypassing the usual sharp teeth and stingers, we’re going to give you only the most incredible a...

The large waves created by earthquakes under the sea floor destroy thousands of lives and livelihoods each year, but we know very little about how these massive walls of water behave. Dr Tiziana Rosetto (UCL Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering) and colleagues studying fluid dynamics have created a completely new way of generating models of these waves. The information they gain allows them to predict the damage exacted by tsunami on buildings and infrastructure, helping communities worldwide defend against these potential disasters.

Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/mhv The Atlantic Wall or “Atlantikwall” in German was an extensive system of coastal defences and fortifications reaching from the South of France to the Northern parts of Norway. In some areas the defenses were quite formidable, whereas in others areas they were lacking. In this video I give you a short overview on the French parts of the Atlantic Wall and then show you how an individual infantry division was setup for coastal defense.

INTRODUCTION: The United States has deployed the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson to the disputed waters of the South China Sea as part of maritime "routine operations." But in the current scenario, the deployment can be called anything but routine. China has a long history of maritime disputes with its South China Sea neighbors. It claims almost all of the South China Sea, including islands more than 800 miles (~1300 km) from the Chinese mainland, despite objections from neighbors such as the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Vietnam. Beijing has also created artificial islands in the area, outfitting some of them with military features. According to the US, China has reclaimed more than 3,000 acres in the Spratly Islands since 2014. Though the US takes no position on the territorial ...

See how a sea cucmber defends itself in nature.
On the east coast of Taiwan, the shoreline at Xinshe in Hualien has receded by over 100 meters in the last 20 years. But the old idea of overcoming the elements with concrete wave breakers and sea walls has only destroyed many stretches of the natural coastline, and made things worse. In our continuing series of features, on shoring up Taiwan's shoreline, we go to rapidly disappearing Xinshe, to find out more. Green "beach" drops into sea A field beside the Pacific Ocean forms a green beach. But scenes like this, could soon be a thing of the past. Xinshe resident, Zhang Qiulin "This is all subsiding, it's sinking all the time. Before, the seawater didn't flood up to here. It only came up to there. Now waves crash over all the time. If a typhoon comes, they come up to here." Poi...
Ukrainian troops, fresh from military school, have been holding training drills near the Black Sea port of Odesa. They are testing high-tech weapons which can fire up to 27 kilometres from the coast. The advanced new type of gun can lock onto an enemy target at sea and use its powerful shells to pierce the strongest of armour.

It’s the USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN-78), the most expensive and most advanced warship ever built. The ship was christened in November 2013 and is scheduled to be commissioned this summer, said Lieutenant Jesus Uranga of the Navy Office of Information. It had been slated to be commissioned this month. The Naval behemoth can house more than 4,500 people and weighs 90,000 tons. The CVN-78 is the lead ship in the Ford class of aircraft carriers, replacing some of the U.S. Navy’s existing Nimitz-class carriers. At first glance, both classes ...
Stephanie says that she wants to know
Why she's given half her life, to people she hates now
Stephanie says when answering the phone
What country shall I say is calling from across the world
But she's not afraid to die, the people all call her alaska
Between worlds so the people ask her 'cause it's all in her mind
It's all in her mind
Stephanie says that she wants to know
Why it is though she's the door she can't be the room
Stephanie says but doesn't hang up the phone
What sea shell she is calling from across the world
But she's not afraid to die, the people all cal her alaska
Between worlds so the people ask her 'cause it's all in her mind

She asks you is it good or bad
It's such an icy feeling it's so cold in alaska,
