Earth has liqud water on its surface, which makes the Earth unique at least in our solar system. The presence of water on Earth has played important roles in shaping the solid regions of the planet as well as in the origin and evolution of life. Here we address the following three fundamental aspects of Earth’s water [1]; (1) the quantity of water on the surface and in the interior that Earth possesses, (2) the length of time that surface oceans have been present, and change in the ocean volume… Expand
