Abstract

As long ago as 1855 Stratingh and Venema gave a description of the Dollard which still holds at first glance. Their description runs as follows (translated from the original, loc. cit. p. 233): “Imagine: a vast, ochre, more or less sandy, silty plain, on the interface of land and water, which at ebb is present in the reeds and drains; smooth in the whole, but anyhow wrinkled by the untiring action of the waves; a sediment which is influenced by the seasons not else than through frost and its concurrent instability owing to thaw; for short, an inanimate plain, which is neither charming, nor graceful, nor wild, nor majestic, nor lofty, but of which the sight bores you- and you have a faithful picture of the tidal flats of the Dollard”.
