For example, hot land temperatures next to cold ocean temperatures will create a stronger sea breeze than land temperatures that are only a little bit warmer than the ocean temperatures. So during the afternoon when the temperatures differences are normally at their highest, the sea breeze will normally be at its strongest, bringing relief from the heat to beachgoers.
It takes less energy to change the temperature of land compared to water. This means that land heats and cools more quickly than water and this difference affects the climate of different areas on Earth. ... The ability to mix in a circulatory motion allows heat to be distributed through more volume than conduction.
