Connection: Archipelagos

Getbol, Korean Tidal Flat – "The area has an OUV that reflects the diversity of the island-type (archipelagic) tidal flat ecosystem and its geological and geomorphological features." "The nominated property includes more than 900 islands, between which are vast areas of tidal flats." (Nomination text, p. 17, 51)

Connection: Dunes

Getbol, Korean Tidal Flat – "[E]ach tidal flat has evolved into a coastal environment that houses diverse habitats including mud flats, sand flats, mixed flats, gravel beaches, rocky substrates, tidal beaches, sand dunes, tidal channels and tidal gullies." (Nomination text, p. 64)

Connection: Otters

Getbol, Korean Tidal Flat – "Terrestrial otters (Lutra lutra) also from time to time come down to salt marshes to feast on tidal organisms. Such feces of the otter have been found in many uninhabited islands (22.3% of total uninhabited islands) in Shinan Getbol not to mention near the other component." (Nomination text, p. 90)

Connection: Shell Mounds (Middens)

Getbol, Korean Tidal Flat – "Shell mounds found in different locations along the coast provide evidence that fishing activities have taken place in the tidal flats for thousands of years. The tidal flats monitoring results show that traditional fishing activities have successfully maintained the tidal flat ecosystem in a balance that includes human processes." (Nomination text, p. 97)

Connection: Salt

Getbol, Korean Tidal Flat – "Narrow belts of sand dunes and salt marshes have formed on the west side of Seocheon Getbol. A small salt marsh is present behind the sand dunes. Another relatively large salt marsh formed in an artificial, abandoned saltpan." (Nomination text, p. 105)

Connection: Peat

Getbol, Korean Tidal Flat – "Sand dunes behind the outer islands of Shinan Getbol host sedimentary deposits as thick as 40 m. At the base of the deposits, well rounded gravel lags are present. Above the gravel lag layer, mud facies containing coarse sands and several layers of peat occurs as well as homogeneous mud facies." (Nomination text, p. 128)

Connection: Traditional Hunting

Getbol, Korean Tidal Flat – "Even today, as aquaculture is a widely used practice, the local fishermen still utilize conventional tools and hand methods that do not affect severely the topography of tidal flats or ecosystem." "A traditional form of fishery activities is common in tidal flats in the southwest coasts of ROK including the property, usually led by the fishing village cooperatives at the village level." (Nomination text, p. 143, 197)

Connection: Rias

Getbol, Korean Tidal Flat – One of the geomorphological settings are "[r]ocky islands and island-type tidal flats on a ria coast, rocky islands with high geomorphological relief and ample supply of terrigenous sediments." (Nomination text, p. 163)

Connection: One million visitors or more

Getbol, Korean Tidal Flat – "Every year, the 5 tidal flat visitor centers in the nominated property welcome 3,000,000 people" (Nomination text, p. 211)

Colchic Rainforests and Wetlands
- > Seems to be mainly peat bogs. "Swamp" occurs once in the AB ev, but only in a general sense. Propose to remove

If the Colchic Rainforests and Wetlands would disappear from the "Swamps and marshes" connection, I would propose to make a new connection called "Bogs", with the same rationale as for "Swamps and marshes", i.e. that the word "bog" needs to feature in the officla description or the AB Evaluation.

---

New connection proposal: Bogs

Description: WHS that include significant bogs.

"A bog or bogland is a wetland that accumulates peat as a deposit of dead plant materials – often mosses, typically sphagnum moss. It is one of the four main types of wetlands." (English Wikipedia - Bog)

The terms "Bog" must occur in the official description or the AB evaluation.

---

Colchic Rainforests and Wetlands – "The main ecosystems are ancient deciduous Colchic rainforests and wetlands, percolation bogs and other mire types of the distinct Colchic mire region. The percolation bogs are of particular global importance as they do not exist anywhere else in the world." (Official description)

L'Anse aux Meadows – "The buildings include three dwellings, one forge and four workshops, on a narrow terrace overlooking a peat bog and small brook near the shore of Epaves Bay in the Straight of Belle Isle." "Extensive archaeological research after the site's discovery in 1960 revealed that the timber-framed structures were constructed with a particular type of gabled roof and covered with turf taken from the surrounding peat bog." (Official description)

Talamanca Range-La Amistad Reserves – "The mosaic includes oak forests, different types of tropical rainforest, cloud forest and the rare high altitude bogs and grasslands." (Official description)

Virgin Komi Forests – "This vast area of conifers, aspens, birches, peat bogs, rivers and natural lakes has been monitored and studied for over 50 years." (Official description)

Possible doubt of adding the connection: does this double up with the "Peat" connection?

Yes it does. I will copy the new ones you found to that one.

What would be the connection? I read in the nom file that 2 railway stations are in the buffer zone.

This connection is more about the trade and production of Salt. We have Salt Flats as well ("a flat expanse of salt left by the evaporation of a body of salt water"), but I don't know if Getbol qualifies for that.

This connection is about being allowed to hunt protected species. I don't think that's the case here.

I didn't think "Salt flats" was appropriate either, so I put it under "Salt", as an artificial saltpan points towards salt production.

Can we have a redirect to "Peat" in the description of the "Swamps and marshes" connection?

e.g. For peat bogs, see the Connection "Peat".

Connection: Architectural design competitions

Town Hall and Roland, Bremen – "The New Town Hall was the result of an architectural competition, designed by Gabriel von Seidl from Munich, and built between 1909 and 1913." (Official description)

Kazan Kremlin – "A special case in the Kremlin complex is the mosque of Koul Charif. There is no exact information about the original mosque, destroyed when the city was captured by Ivan the Terrible in 1552. The mosque can therefore be seen as a new building. The project for construction of a mosque was chosen at the architectural competition founded by the government. The approved project adheres to traditional vision of the spatial concept and decor; however, modern materials and structural systems are applied." (Official description)

Skogskyrkogarden – "In 1912, Stockholm City Council acquired a tract of former gravel pits overgrown with pine trees for the purpose of creating a new cemetery. An international architectural competition for its design was won by two 30 year old Swedish architects, Gunnar Asplund and Sigurd Lewerentz. Work began in 1917 and the formal consecration of Skogskyrkogården (The Woodland Cemetery) and its Woodland Chapel took place in 1920." (Official description)

Interesting, the Po delta is also in this list.

the swamps have been drained here to make the area suitable for agriculture and towns

OK, so are we also valuing the historical aspect for this connection?

I suggest a new connection (World Heritage Process):
"Perfect inscriptions: recommendation of inscription by the advisory body, then inscribed at first attempt".

This would force us to dive back tediously into the recommendations year by year but we could at the end obtain a list of all the places which have been inscribed without doubt on their value.

Connection: Baroque

Grand Place, Brussels – "(...) houses occupied by powerful corporations. Each different but built over a very short time, they illustrate remarkably the Baroque architecture of the late 17th century, with a singular treatment of the gables and decorations, sometimes fretted, sometimes more classical." (Official description)

Plantin-Moretus Museum – "Criterion (iv): As an outstanding example of the relationship between the living environment of a family during the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries, the world of work and the world of commerce, the Plantin-Moretus Complex is of unrivalled documentary value relating to significant periods of European history: the Renaissance, the Baroque and Classicism.
