The IJsselmeer, or Lake IJssel, represents the northern flank of the Dutch Delta. In several aspects, this region is quite different from the South West Dutch Delta and the Rotterdam Rijnmond region. For one thing, as a delta landscape, it is less dynamic then the other two delta regions. Also, as an urbanized area dominated by the city of Amsterdam, the northern delta is more mono-centric than the area around Rotterdam. Finally, the IJsselmeer area is less industrialized and serves a less important transport function than the other parts of the Dutch Delta.
