Caption: Topographical map of the world. Relief-shaded topographical map of the world, showing only the relative elevation of the Earth's surface as it would appear without the seas and oceans. This map reveals many tectonic faults, such as the Mid- Atlantic Ridge (left of centre) and the deep subduction faults of the Pacific rim (left and far right). Most of the plate surfaces are flat, with mountains mainly at plate margins. The distortions at the far top and bottom of the frame are a function of the mapping process. The data for this image were gathered by a variety of survey techniques.
