Earth (IPA: /ɜrθ/) is the third planet from the Sun and is the largest of the terrestrial planets in the Solar System, in both diameter and mass. It is also referred to as the Earth, Planet Earth, Gaia, Terra, and "the World".
Here are three views of our planet displaying land surface elevations after all the planetary water has been removed. This is called Topography, and in these three examples false colors have been used to highlight the variations in the Earth's surface, with blue being the lowest elevations and browns being the highest.
