The northwest coast of Holland is made up of a series of islands with a complex network of channels that run between the various sand banks. The Zuiderzee Works are a man-made system of dams, land reclamation and water drainage works designed to protect against flooding from the North Sea. The project closed off the Zuiderzee and turned it into a lake. The Netherlands is one of the most low-lying countries in the world. The Zuiderzee Works are now considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World.
