OBJECTIVE: To learn how the uneven heating between land and water create Sea and Land Breezes

Land and water absorb heat differently. Land heats up and cools down faster than water. This uneven heating creates Sea and Land breezes. Sea and Land breezes is an example of heat transfer by convection! Remember,Convection is one of the major ways that heat is transferred. It occurs because hotter liquids and gasses have a tendency to rise, while colder liquids and gasses have a tendency to sink().
