How are coastal climates moderated by the high specific heat capacity of water, compared to inland climates?
What Are Coastal Climates?
AKA: Thermal capacity
Water absorbs lots of heat before getting hot
Helps regulate the rate at which air changes temperature
This is why temperature change between seasons is gradual rather than sudden, especially near the oceans.
