Dredgers work to create new land in front of the Europort to create the Europort nr. 2 in Rotterdam September 1, 2009. With scientists predicting that sea levels will rise by about one metre (3.3 feet) this century, the Dutch are reversing centuries of tradition to create natural flood plains for rivers as well as rebuild mangrove swamps as buffers against the sea. Instead of raising dikes, the Dutch want to reclaim land and build public recreation areas that can absorb storm surges. Picture taken September 1, 2009.
