Ringkøbing Fjord
Ringkøbing Fjord is a shallow fjord in West Jutland that is shielded from the North Sea by the long isthmus of Holmsland Dunes. In Hvide Sande Canal in the middle of the isthmus, there is a floodgate that provides access to the sea to the west. The fjord is about 30 kilometers long and 2-3 meters deep. In the southwestern corner is the peninsula Tipperne, on which a bird reservation is established. To the northeast is the town of Ringkøbing. In former times, Ringkøbing Fjord was affected by oxygen depletion, but today there is both plant life and fish in the water.
Ringkøbing Fjord was originally a bay, around which there has gradually grown two sandbars, with a bank that has shifted repeatedly over time by water movements. In the mid-1600s it was near Sønder Havrvig, but gradually moved south as sand was deposited onto the shoal from the north. By the late 1700s, it was close to the town of Nymindegab. The water had several times collapsed the dunes, causing the old outflow to fill with sand, which complicated the situation of fisherman in the area. Therefore, in 1891 a channel was dug south of Nymindegab, which in 1910 was replaced by another channel in Hvide Sande. A storm surge in 1911 created an opening of 230 meters and large floods in the fjord environs. This led to a reopening in 1915 of the passage at the southern end of the fjord, and a closure of the passage near Hvide Sande-- which was later reopened with the establishment of a lock in 1931.
