Problem 28Q

Why are coastal geographic regions normally cooler in the summer than inland geographic regions?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 28Q

Coastal geographic regions are normally cooler in the summer than inland geographic regions because cold currents of the ocean i.e the wind of surface currents, bring in cold water plus air into the region. Because of the surrounding water,  the coastal cities absorbs the heat which keeps the city cool. Water has a specific heat greater than earth. The water of the sea or ocean has a high heat capacity so the temperature doesn't have a large increase. It holds more heat in winter and absorbs more heat in summer. Also currents tend to bring warm water to temperate areas thus enhancing the effect. Hence, coastal geographic regions are normally cooler in the summer than inland geographic regions.
