In other places, the surface of the Earth is covered with forests!
Earth is the only planet we know of to have life on the surface. Some lifeforms, such as the trees shown here, require water, which is found in abundance on the surface of the Earth.
We have shown you continents, plates, the depth of the crust, and a hint of what exists underneath. We have shown you oceans, ocean currents, rivers, and lakes. We have also shown you deserts and forests. We hope you have enjoyed this Exploratour of the Surface of the Earth.
