Question and answer
How does the oceanic reservoir store heat?
According to the America Chemical Society, water in liquid form has a high heat capacity. The oceans absorb the majority of the incoming solar energy. As the water warms, the volume of heated water expands. A larger area of heated water takes longer to cool down.
