Caption: Earth, topographical map, centred on the Prime Meridian (0 degrees East). Elevation is colour- coded. On land, low-lying areas are green, with yellow, orange, red and finally grey indicating increasing elevation. In the oceans, the shallow waters of the continental shelf are turquoise, with deeper blues showing deeper waters. The highest point on Earth is Mount Everest, at 8848 metres above sea level, in the Himalaya mountain range (grey/red, upper right). The lowest point is Challenger Deep, at 10,900 metres below sea level, at the southern end of the Mariana Trench (purple arc between Japan and New Guinea at centre right). ***A full-size image at 167Mb is available on request from SPL***
