- Description : The unique position of the Netherlands has resulted
in a geological history that exhibits a fascinating variation in composition.
The Netherlands subsoil is comprised of a large variety of sediments, which
were deposited by the sea, rivers, wind, land ice masses and even volcanoes,
under differing climatic conditions in the recent and distant past. The inhabitants
of the Netherlands have adapted to the changing geological situation for thousands
of years. They have also altered it by building dikes, changing the course
of rivers, extracting aggregates, digging peat and reclaiming lakes. These
natural and man-made forces have combined to make the Netherlands what it
is today: a varied, complex, alluvial area with a rich variety of deposits
and geomorphological phenomena reflecting our geological heritage. This gives
you acces to this exciting history.
