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: email@example.com 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.

The United States Navy has successfully tested its potent new Raytheon AN/SPY-6(V) Air and Missile Defense Radar (AMDR) against simultaneous air and ballistic missile threats. The powerful Gallium Nitride-based active electronically scanned array radar will replace the Lockheed Martin AN/SPY-1D phased array radar on future Block III Arleigh Burke-class destroyers as the core of the Aegis combat system. According to Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA), the AMDR performed exactly as expected during the September 7 test event, which was designated Vigilant Talon. During the test, at 13:38 local time— or 19:38 Eastern Daylight Time—the Navy simultaneously launched a short-range ballistic missile target and multiple air-to-surface cruise missile targets off the west coast of Hawaii to put the...
Video shows USA deploying THAAD Missile Defense System to South Korea to send a message to North Korea over North Koreas recent missile tests despite Chinas concern and demonstration footage of the THAAD System in action during THAAD launches. The United States started to deploy the first elements of its advanced anti-missile defence system in South Korea on Tuesday after North Korea's test of four ballistic missiles, US Pacific Command said, despite angry opposition from China. The announcement came as North Korean state media said leader Kim Jong -un had personally supervised Monday's missile launches by an army unit that is positioned to strike US bases in Japan, stepping up threats against Washington as US troops conduct joint military exercises with South Korea. The United States a...

Hidden Atlantic Wall WW2 - Berlin Fortress Documentary - National TV The Atlantic Wall surface was an extensive air conditioner of seaside defense and also strongholds built by Nazi Germany between 1942 and 1944 along the coast of continental Europe as well as Scandinavia as a protection versus an anticipated Allied intrusion of Nazi-occupied Europe from Great Britain throughout World War II. Hitler purchased the renovation of the fortifications in 1942. Almost a million French workers were composed to build it. The wall surface was regularly mentioned in Nazi propaganda, where its dimension as well as strength were usually exaggerated. The strongholds included gigantic seaside guns, batteries, mortars, as well as weapons, as well as hundreds of German troops were posted in its defenses....
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...
Hi, Set off here to take a video of the Sea defense work currently underway, Funny how history works, then I remembered it was a different sea defense in my father/grandfathers day! so had a look at the defense to keep the Germans away. Then just Hung around, a quick view of the beach I would swim from in the 70's and well just 'Hanging around Harrington'. Hope you enjoy. Subscribe to my YouTube channel to see all my videos.

TU Delft TV - BeachRock The idea behind BeachRock is that certain enhanced natural attributes are being used to defend vulnerable coastlines against the growing threat of climate change. The continuous movement of water and wind erodes coastlines around the world threatening people living close to the sea. To defend these coastlines different methods can be used. One of these methods is the 'Sand Motor', a manmade stretch of beach with millions of cubic meters sand. The natural movement of waves helps eroding the Sand Motor and deposits sand further north on the Dutch coast where it is needed to prevent further coastal decline. A different defence approach is being researched at the Delft University of Technology. Below the surface a natural process helps gluing sand grains together. ...
As part of the defenses for the seaside town of Tywyn a large groyne was erected at the south end of the promenade opposite Warwick road. The rocks were delivered by sea from St Malo France and North Wales mostly by ship that transferred the rocks to barges which in turn delivered the rocks to the beach.

As a defense mechanism a sea cucumber will shoot part of its resperatory system out of its body when bothered. Fish will go after the guts and give the cucumber time to scoot away and live another day. Our dive guide poked the cucumber a bit to get us to demonstrate. Since nothing was around to eat its guts, it quickly sucked them back in. Kind of gross but fascinating, and not harmful to the sea cucumber in the end. A very alien world down under the sea, especially at night.
Stephanie says that she wants to know
Why she's given half her life, to people she hates now

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

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,
