The heat capacity of sand is .84 J/gK. This means it takes .84 joules of heat to increase the temperature of one gram of sand, up one degree. Heat is retained in sand longer than air because air is free flowing and the movement helps the cooldown process, while sand is dense and soaks up solar heat, while staying relatively stationary.
