National park status[edit]

AFAIK the Dutch and Danish Wadden Sea do not have national park status. Therefore I removed the corresponding sentence. Please correct me, if I should be wrong. -- Cordyph 14:02 17 Jun 2003 (UTC)

Picture[edit]

i think, the picture shows only a part of the wadden sea. it should be mentioned or can someone add the northern part?

Name[edit]

Is Wadden Sea really the common name in English for all of the area? I would assume it is appropriate for the Dutch part as a translation of Waddenzee. But it seems a bit odd to use a semi-Dutch term when it comes to the Wattenmeer (German) and Vadehavet (Danish). --Sasper 02:24, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

Yes, it seems Wadden Sea is a well-established name in English. A lot of traditional placenames in the English language are semi-foreign and a confusion of forms, so there is nothing odd in that. I searched in the Library of Congress catalogue and I found a publication by a Danish biologist from 1951 using the word "Waddensea" and several ones written by Dutch authors ("Wadden Sea") from the 1950s and onwards. Since the 1970s or 1980s the term has been common for both Dutch, Danish and German publications in English. --Sasper (talk) 11:55, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

History/Creation[edit]

I'm not completely sure, but I think the area is relative new and was created in the 17th century, when most of the old coast was spewpt away. But it may be possible, that there was a similar situation before, at the edge of the old shoreline. See Grote Mandenke. The german article on it is much more detailed http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zweite_Marcellusflut MartinKal 13:16, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

Well, the present situation was reached in the 14th century. Earlier flooding at the end of the last Ice Age created peat land, that was in turn destroyed by soil shrinkage due to human cultivation combined with rising sealevels.--MWAK 08:41, 28 October 2007 (UTC)
