Because sunlight penetrates to greater depths in land than in water.
Land is dry, but water washes up onto water surfaces making it wet.
This is because the mean specific heat capacity of land is very less in comparision to that of water.
Land surfaces heat up and cool down faster than water surfaces.
Land absorbs more heat energy than water does.
absorbed by earth surfaces, land and water
land and water, and warms them. it also bonces in to the universe.
No. Land releases energy at a faster rate than water. Land cools and heats more rapidly than water.
Because solids cool off and heat up more rapidly than liquids.
Water circulates so more of it must be heated (or cooled) to change temperature. With the land, only the top few inches change temperature at first--it takes awhile for the warmth to penetrate. So terrestrial surface measurements rise much faster in the morning and cool down faster in the evenings--the water tends to remain closer to the same temperature day and night.
The oceans (and to a lesser extent, lakes) have a moderating effect on climate because water can absorb excess heat and does not lose heat as rapidly as land surfaces. So in the winter, open seas will provide heat to coastal land areas. They can, however, add moisture as well, which in some areas could increase cloud cover and precipitation, and potentially lower temperatures as well.
Land heats more rapidly and to higher temperatures than water. Land also cools more rapidly and to lower temperatures than water
The land mass is both dark and denser than water. It captures - and retains - heat more efficiently than water.
Compared to land, NO!
The radiation from the sun is heating them both the same. However, the sun penetrates the surface water and water at a great depth. This is because the water is transparent and lets energy pass through. On the other hand, the sun only heats up the top layer of the land. This is because the land is a solid. A solid is opaque and does not let energy through. Also, since water is transparent meaning the color doesn't attract the sunlight as much as land.Land VS. Water1)Heat loss to evaporation (latent heat)2) Transparent can penetrate and spread out deeper3) convection in the water mixes it4) high specific heatActually land is heated more than water because there is less land to heat and more water to heat so it heats unevenly
Human disturbance of land surfaces. Wind and water.
By the land
It can land on a paved runway, sand, water, dirt, and grass.
Land and water surfaces affect the overlying air by the amount of moisture rising, altering humidity. Air over see will be wetter or more humid than air over land.
because there is more heat on land
It varies, depending upon the relative humidity of the air above the surfaces.
Yes, they can but they usually dissipate rapidly when they do.
land heats faster than water because it has lower specific heat capacity
Even in the absence of major wind systems or rain showers, there will still often be a coastal breeze because sunlight heats land surfaces more rapidly than sea surfaces. During the day this generates rising air and a breeze blowing from the sea onto the shore. During the night, the land cools more rapidly so there is sinking air flowing from the shore to the sea. Daytime winds are generally sea breezes and night winds are generally land breezes.
Land holds more heat than water because the earth has magma and lava but water doesn't
