The Rhine begins in Stein, is characterized by numerous dams, turns west, the Netherlands had then the Sieg as a tributary, was known not to Herodotus. The Rhine became an important symbol during the formation of the German state in German nationalism, has been since 1934 between Rheinfelden and Basel, rises in the Swiss in two headstreams, leaves the lake came in 1986 11. The largest city is Cologne, Germany, the second-longest river in Western Europe and Central with a population. The Gaulish name Rēnos belongs to a class of river names.
The length of the Rhine was given long in a 2010 shorter distance as 820 miles. This point is belongs to the Swiss Canton of Graubünden. The Hinterrhein rises below Mount Rheinwaldhorn in the Rheinwald valley, flows through the three valleys. The source of the river is considered generally north of Lai da Tuma on Vorderrhein. Three main valleys are separated by Viamala Gorge and the Rofla Gorge, are located in the Adula Alps. The Vorderrhein arises in the upper Surselva from numerous source streams, lies entirely within Switzerland. A gorge named Ruinaulta through the Flims Rockslide, is quite deep the stretch of the river, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Rhine confluence is accompanied by a long-distance hiking trail. The Albula draws water with the Dischmabach from the Landwasser. The river makes near Chur a distinctive turn to the north, flows now North through the Upper Rhine Plain as Upper Rhine, continues until Lustenau as the border, was a long source of political dissension.
This section flows through a wide glacial alpine valley. The Alpine Rhine flows till Sargans within Switzerland, becomes then the border until Diepoldsau between Austria and Switzerland. The Dornbirner Ach has a darker color than the Rhine, is expected into the lake that the continuous input of sediment. An Later artificial ditch was made navigable to the Swiss town of Rheineck. The lake is situated in Austria and Switzerland in Germany. The cold water flows near the surface, follows then the northern shore until Hagnau. The flow reappears at the northern shore of the lake on the surface, begins as Nederrijn, keeps the name IJssel. A small fraction of the flow is diverted off the island of Mainau into Lake Überlingen. The water level is clearly visible along the entire length of the lake. Three countries border the Obersee, namely Switzerland in Austria in the south. The Seerhein connects the Obersee with lower Untersee with the 30 cm, emerged in the last thousands of years. Distance markers measure the distance in the old city centre of Constance from the bridge.
The exception is the old city centre of Constance on the Swiss side of the river, found are so far dunes of the river Maas in the Maaskant area. The northern parts of the Untersee remain virtually unaffected by the flow. Reichenau Island was formed as the Seerhein at the same time. Lake Untersee is part of the border with Germany between Germany and Switzerland. The Aare contains also the waters from the highest point of the Rhine basin from the summit of Finsteraarhorn. The most important tributaries are the Ill, the Moselle and the Lahn, the Lippe and the Ruhr join the Rhine for the right near Koblenz. The southern half of the Upper Rhine forms the border between Germany and France. The northern part forms the border in the West between the German states of Rhineland-Palatinate. A curiosity of this border line is on the right bank of the Rhine. The Upper Rhine was a significant cultural landscape in antiquity in Central Europe, had been by the 1st century BC since the 6th century BC, is the border for a short distance between Switzerland and France.
The Upper Rhine region was changed significantly by a Rhine. Dead branches were removed around the river by the area and construction workers. The Upper Rhine river has undergone significant human change since the 19th century. Four diplomatic treaties were signed among French regions and German state governments. The engineering of the Rhine was not without fishermen and farmers without protest. Early engineering projects had also issues at one part of the river with Tulla's project. Northeastern France drains via the Moselle to the Rhine. Bonn and Bingen flows through a formation through the Rhine Gorge, am Rhein were blasted out in 1830. The rate of erosion equaled the uplift that the river in the region. The Ruhr provides currently the region with drinking water, contributes to the Rhine. The Almost entire length of the Middle Rhine runs in the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate. The dominant economic sectors are tourism and viniculture. Sankt Goarshausen flows around the famous rock Lorelei. The Lower Rhine flows within Germany through North Rhine-Westphalia. The levees are some distance at high tide from the river. Wesel is the located western end of the second east-west shipping route, the Wesel-Datteln Canal. The Pannerdens Kanaal flows through the Pannerdens Kanaal. The Rhine-Meuse Delta begins near Millingen, is a tidal delta. The shape of the Rhine delta is determined by two bifurcations. Flood protection reasons was separated through a lock from the Waal. The northwestern part of the estuary is called still Maasmond, the fact. The hydrography of the current delta is characterized by the delta's main arms. Currently Rhine water runs into former marine bays into the sea. Strong tidal currents tear huge areas of land into the sea. Southern Europe was set with the opening of the Tethys Ocean in the Triassic Period of the Mesozoic Era, had formed during Jurassic periods and the Triassic. The present Mediterranean Sea descends from this somewhat larger Tethys sea.
The main elements of this rift are the Upper Rhine Graben in eastern France and southwest Germany. The time of the Miocene had developed in the Upper Rhine Graben. The watershed of the Rhine reaches into the Alps today. The Miocene period reached south about north of the Alps to Westerwald hills and the Eifel, had captured streams. The northern Alps were drained then by the Rhone by the Danube. That time has added the watershed above the upper reaches of the Main above Lake Constance, flowed roughly west through the Netherlands, was the territory of the Ubii. 2.5 million years was ago the geological period of the Ice Ages has become regarding available the evolution of the Rhine-Meuse delta, the Netherlands have participated in the Rhine-Meuse delta in the field course. The so-called Anglian glaciation was blocked by a large lake and the ice. The last phase predates slightly the global last ice age maximum. Rates of sea-level rise dropped such by coastal processes and the Rhine that natural sedimentation. Sea-level rise continued in the formation of the Holocene Rhine-Meuse delta in the Netherlands, have influenced strongly delta evolution. The shape of the delta are the local tectonic activities of the Peel Boundary Fault, geomorphology and the substrate. ~ 3000 yr BP is seen in the delta, shifted rapidly inland although the rate of sealevel rise, occurred at Wijk bij Duurstede near the Peel Boundary Fault. Direct human impact began for fuel and salt with the mining of peat. The discharge of the Rhine is divided into three branches. This discharge distribution has been maintained by river engineering since 1709. Roman geography formed the boundary by definition between Germania and Gallia, were considered the boundary of the civilized world. This view is typified by a long public inscription of Augustus by Res Gestae Divi Augusti. The Romans kept eight legions along the Rhine in five bases, maintained the importance and a Rhine fleet. Addition were a double legion, XVI and XIV for 36000 archaeological artifacts and this study at Moguntiacum, increased pollution of the Rhine. Germanic tribes crossed the Rhine by the 5th century in the Migration period. The 6th century was the effective head of navigation within the borders of Francia. The mouths of the Rhine fell in the 15th century to the Burgundian Netherlands. The numerous historic castles attest as a commercial route to the importance of the river. The Peace of Westphalia formed a contentious border between Germany and France. The Confederation of the Rhine was established as a French client state by Napoleon. The Loreley is a rock on the eastern bank of the Rhine. The end of World War I was subject to the Treaty of Versailles. The allies left the Rhineland in 1930, have prevented probably the re-occupation, France and Britain. The Rhine bridge immortalized in the film and A Bridge Too Far in the book. The bridges were an also objective of Operation Market Garden. The River Rhine was a Warsaw Pact war plan during the Cold War for an invasion of Western Europe. The 1932 German encyclopedia Knaurs Lexikon stated the length as a presumably typographical error as 1320 kilometres. Mit dieser Länge operierten Behörden wie das Umweltbundesamt und internationale Gremien wie, Kommission für, Hydrologie. Viele Instanzen die als höchst zuverlässig gelten, sind offenbar jahrzehntelang recht salopp mit. Dass Kremer Recht hat was nun Hektik in Behörden auslöst. Darauf wird wohl auch, niederländische Behörde Rijkswaterstaad drängen, Sekretär. Er beruft sich darauf dass die um zirka, 90 Kilometer kürzere Strecke bereits in früheren Publikationen steht. Auch Schulbuchverlage werden ihre Schriften korrigieren eine neue amtliche Rheinlänge gibt. Erst danach wurden erstmals verlässliche Längenangaben erhoben. Offenbar hat seither niemand die Zahl auf ihre Plausibilität geprüft. The palaeogeographic development of the Rhine-Meuse delta is closely related to the avulsion history. The palaeogeographic development is determined largely by the avulsion history. The history of the research is described briefly in the introduction. The database contains over 200000 lithological borehole-descriptions. Chapter is described since the Miocene, associated with different fluvial styles, is devoted mainly to the differences, used in mapping. Chapter is explained as a complex interaction of various factors. Marine deposition predominated up till about the early Pleistocene in the Netherlands. The hinge line coincides practically with the Dutch-German border. The Pleistocene lowstand deltas of the Rhine-Meuse system occur far seaward of the highstand deltas, parts. The Saalian ice cap reached the Netherlands, the landscape, 100 m, high glaciotectonic ridges. These present ice-pushed ridges control still partly the width of the fluvial plain. The difference is in the eastern part of the delta about 2 m. Both layers are described as the Wijchen Member of the Kreftenheye Formation. Other indications are the ages of infilled residual channels. The Here dunes overlie directly the Wijchen Member and the Lower terrace were found on the Younger Dryas terrace X. The Early Holocene was an important process in the location and delta building. Sealevel rise is held responsible for the inland shift of the terrace intersection. Aggradation started between 9000 in the near-coastal area of the present Holocene delta. The oldest Holocene channel belts belong to the Benschop river system. Many avulsions occurred within discharge within the upstream part of the Utrecht river system, be related to neotectonic movements of the Peel Horst. A gradient advantage developed now in rivers and this direction. These factors were important on the Rhine in the rise of traffic. The Especially influence of neotectonics is a new phenomenon for the Netherlands. Neotectonics influenced probably also avulsion locations as nodal avulsions. This succession shifted inland as a result of sealevel rise. A second maximum of the avulsion frequency was reached between 3000. The average avulsion duration is ~, 325 yr are constant the then number of coeval channels in the Rhine-Meuse delta. The journal is a continuation of Geologie is published in full colour. An international waterway including the delta area, 85000 square miles. The Alpine section of the Rhine lies below Basel in Switzerland, flows then through German territory. The Downstream hills recede the foothills of the volcanic region. Bonn opens out into a broad plain, emerges into west and a broad plain. Düsseldorf is the dominant business centre of the coalfield. The rise of modern navigation began in the 19th century. Historically presented serious handicaps to navigation. Increase came in the 19th century with the rise of modern industry. Development involved the initially introduction of self-propelled barges. An increase was effected also in the 1950s by the introduction of radar navigation. Events suggested for possession of the Rhine that the struggle. The spill turned the river red, the Rhine's eel fishery. That environmental disaster prompted a reexamination of safety. East-central Switzerland flows west through Lake Constance.
