3.2 The Dutch climate

Slide 1 - Tekstslide

Learning objectives:
After studying this section, you will be able to:
  • Explain the difference between the weather and climate
  • Use a climate graph to describe the Dutch climate

Slide 2 - Tekstslide

The difference between weather & climate:
Weather = looking at the current situation at a specific moment.
Climate = the average weather condition of a certain place, generally measured over 30 years.

Climates are changing (chapter 4).

Slide 3 - Tekstslide

Climate graph
A climate graph shows average temperature and precipitation throughout the year.

Talking point: When might you make use of a climate graph?

Slide 4 - Tekstslide

Slide 5 - Tekstslide

Climate graph for Groningen
Climate graph for Maastricht

Slide 6 - Tekstslide

The Dutch climate: North vs. South
There are small differences in the Dutch weather depending on where you are in the country:
  • Groningen is further away from the equator than Maastricht.
  • At the equator, incoming solar radiation is at its strongest.
  • This is mostly due to the curved shape of the Earth.

Climate graph for The Hague.
Climate graph for Enschede.

Slide 10 - Tekstslide

The Dutch climate: East vs. West
Maritime effect = Places close to the North Sea experience this effect: it is cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

Sea water warms up very slowly in the summer and loses its heat very slowly during the winter. 

Slide 11 - Tekstslide

Frontal rainfall
Gulf stream = Sea current coming from the equator.

Southwestern winds are warm, coming from the equator and collide with cold air from the north.
