1. Thermal Inertia: San Francisco & Norfolk, Virginia are on same latitude. Why would Norfolk, compared to SF, have warmer summers & cooler winter?
- air in SF moved over sea & air in Norfolk moved over land

2. Describe different ways temps are "moderated" on earth. Without moderate temp, Earth could not support life as we know it.
- liquid water
- distance from ocean
- higher humidities = moderate temp
