Abstract In this study we evaluate recently proposed scaling relations for the sea-breeze strength using independent data for a relatively homogeneous area in The Netherlands. We show that several of the scaling relations in the literature incorporate hidden correlation. Furthermore, it appears that the estimate for the sea-breeze strength is better made on the basis of the time-integrated rather than of the instantaneous sensible heat flux. It also turns out that for similar forcing the sea breeze in The Netherlands is about twice as strong as the sea breeze in the Vancouver area of Canada.
