Best Answer

Inland areas have a greater temperature range because water has a high specific heat. Basically, coastal areas heat and cool slowly because it takes a long time for the water to heat up and cool down (due to it having such a large specific heat).

What is the average temperature for all deserts?

Most hot and dry deserts are located near the Tropic of Cancer or the Tropic of Capricorn. As their name indicates, they are hot and they are dry. Hot and dry deserts' temperatures range from 20 to 25° C. Summer temperatures in these deserts often reach 100 degrees Fahrenheit or higher. At night the temperature may drop to 45 degrees Fahrenheit or lower.Jordan was here :)dope MF!


How does the weather affect the wildlife?

Different species have different ranges of tolerance, which define the conditions where they can live, and optimal, or preferred temperatures, where they will be most productive. Often, higher temperatures are associated with higher productivity, however, at extreme temperature values (which vary relative to the species), conditions become too harsh. At the extreme of their zones of tolerance, organisms will be stressed and more vulnerable to other threats. An animal, for example, could be stressed directly under the conditions, and may also experience shortages of food if the organisms that it feeds on are stressed. Long-term changes can lead to migrations as organisms shift to areas with more appropriate temperatures, or extinctions/extirpation if they cannot reach those areas.


What are the temperature ranges of liquid magma?
