Happy World Oceans Day

The United States Geologic Survey (USGS) has produced a visually-powerful new graphic that shows how much water is on Earth — which seems relatively small compared to the size of the planet.  The large sphere of water represents Earth’s total water volume, and according to USGS, “includes all the water in the oceans, ice caps, lakes, and rivers, as well as groundwater, atmospheric water, and even the water in you, your dog, and your tomato plant.”
