The climate of Lake IJssel (the Netherlands)
Lake IJssel is the largest lake of the Netherlands and has a surface area of 1,100 square kilometers. The deepest part of the lake is about 9.5 meters below sea level. Lake Ijssel borders the provinces of Friesland, Flevoland, North Holland and is separated from the Wadden Sea by the Afsluitdijk (dike). The Houtribdijk seperates Lake IJssel from Lake Marken. Prior to the construction of the Afsluitdijk Lake IJssel was the Zuiderzee. The lake is very popular among water sports enthusiasts. During the winter of 1963 the entire lake was frozen solid; rallies were held on the ice. During the winter of 1996 the lake was entirely frozen over as well. Lake Ijssel has a moderate maritime climate which may be bleak; mainly because the wind can blow freely here. The lake also influences the climate in the surrounding areas because the lake is quite shallow in most places. The influence is strongest during the winter when the temperature of the water drops more rapidly than the temperature of the water in the North Sea, the wind blows this cold air to the mainland.
