Mritime climate is at places near to the water/ocean while continental climate is inland away from water. the temparature of water increases and decreases slower than continental mass therefore the temperature amplitude in maritime climate is smaller while continental climate has a high temperature amplitude on a daily basis and seasonal. also continental climate is drier than maritime climate as the air humidity condensates and presipitates as the wind is travelling inland. over the ocean there is a lot of water condensating into the air which precipitates when hitting the continental mass and cooling the air down. examples for continental climate is australias inland desert. maritime climate is coastal, north of australia,islands in the indian ocean etc.
