The climate of the Markermeer (the Netherlands)
The Markermeer is a large lake south of the Ijsselmeer (Lake Ijssel). The Houtribdijk (dike) forms the border between these two lakes. The Markermeer was named after the former island of Marken, which was situated in the lake. Cornelis Lely originally wanted to impolder the entire Markermeer. However, after heavy protests this plan was never executed because of fears that the areas behind it would silt up. However, it took till 2003 to definitely abandon this plan. The Markermeer is very popular among water sport enthusiasts; several marinas are situated along the lake. Both Lake Marken and Lake Ijssel strongly influence the climate in the places surrounding the lakes. This influence is particularly strong during the winter; because Lake Marken is quite shallow the water cools down rapidly and the wind blows this cold air over the land.
