How does the exceptional heat capacity of water affect climate on earth?
"The high specific heat of water affects Earth's climate because it makes the temperatures of the oceans relatively resistant to change."
My comments are below.
See Chemistry: The Essential Science 13e pg. 182
If specific heat is the amount of heat required to raise a substance
In essence, if our oceans were more easily heated, they'd be more easily evaporated, which in turn would produce
This is one perspective, I'm sure there are others.
