Ocean Draining

This model demonstrates what Earth would look like without ocean water. With ocean water missing, the seven large plates on Earth's surface would be visible. The movement of these plates determines the ocean basin size, shape, and features. Some of these ocean features include the highest peaks, deepest valleys, and flattest plains found on Earth.
