Land. This difference in heat conduction results in seaside winds - in the morning, the land has heated more quickly and has higher pressure air above it, making the air travle to lower pressure above the sea. In the evening, the land has cooled more quickly and has lower pressure air above it, making the air above the sea travel towards the land.

What is heats and cools more slowly than land?

Water


When the land heats and cools more quickly than the water what is produced?

After the sun sets, land typically cools more rapidly than the ocean or sea. As the land cools, the air close to the surface cools, as well. Since cold air is denser than warm air, the cold air tends to sink and compress. The falling and compressing air creates a void at higher altitudes, and the void is then filled with high-altitude air over the oceans or sea. This, in turn, creates an updraft of air over the water, which creates a void at low altitude over the water. Finally, the air near the land's surface tries to fill the void over the water. This produces on offshore breeze or a land breeze. That is, the wind blows away from land and out to sea. The reverse occurs when the sun rises and heats the land faster than the water.


How does air temperature over land and adjacent bodies of water change between day and night?

In the daytime the Sun heats up the surface of the Oceans slightly faster than the Earth's surfaces: it heats the air above and the Wind runs from the Land to the Sea. In the evening the Sun's warmth is retained in the mass of the Earth's surface longer than in the Oceans' bulk: it heats the air above and the Wind flows from the Sea to the Land.


Does it take longer for water to change temperature than land?

Yes oceans and to a lesser extent lakes have much more stable temperatures than the air. This is due to the high specific heat capacity of water.


What best explains the difference in temperature between the ocean and the sand?

Water both heats up and cools down at a slower rate than land.

Does land lose heat faster than water?

Soil is solid. Its molecules are close to one another so it heats faster. It also cools faster. Water is liquid. Molecules in liquids are farther apart so water heats more slowly............ Andre Ü


How do you think the temperature of the ocean compares with the temperature of the land nearby?

Land heats more rapidly and to higher temperatures than water does, and cools quicker to lower temperatures than water. Ocean temperatures are more moderate than land temperatures.

How can land cause weather?

Land heats up and cools down much faster than water, so when the suns rays hit land and heat it up, the land heats up the air surrounding it causing it to rise up in the atmosphere. Then once the air has risen to a high enough point it cools, creating clouds and, depending on the amount of water vapor in the air, rain.
