The climate of Flevoland (the Netherlands)
Flevoland is the youngest province of the Netherlands. This unique province was created during the beginning of the 20th century solely by means of land reclamation and is situated about 5 meters below sea level. Flevoland can be divided into two parts: the Noordoostpolder (North-Eastern Polder) and South and East Flevoland. The entire area used to be part of the Zuiderzee (nowadays Lake IJssel/IJsselmeer). To create more farmland and to protect the Netherlands from flooding the area was impoldered, i.e. reclaimed from the sea. Flevoland has a unique landscape because it was made by human hands. The area is best described as very flat and very wide. This means the wind can blow freely here. Temperatures in Flevoland are strongly influenced by the water, even more than in other places in the Netherlands. Because of its situation on Lake IJssel differences in temperatures between summer and winter are not as large as in other places in the Netherlands. Almere and Lelystad are the largest cities in Flevoland. However, the largest part of the Flevopolder is a natural area. This is to preserve a proper balance in this part of Lake IJssel.
