How do large bodies of water affect climate?

    The effect large bodies of water have (such as the ocean) is called the Maritime Effect. This effect results in a lower range in surface air temperature at both daily and annual scales. So the region has cooler summers and milder winters compared to further inland.

    Large bodies of water serve create a more temperate climate in the adjacent land areas. They do this by serving as heat sinks in warm periods and heat sources during cold periods – thus providing lower extreme temperature highs and lows.
