  • Ocean world

    Type of terrestrial planet that contains a substantial amount of water as hydrosphere at its surface or within a subsurface ocean. Also used sometimes for astronomical bodies with an ocean composed of a different fluid or thalassogen, such as lava , ammonia (in a eutectic mixture with water, as is likely the case of Titan's inner ocean) or hydrocarbons like on Titan's surface (which could be the most abundant kind of exosea). Wikipedia

  • Water distribution on Earth

    Most water in Earth's atmosphere and crust comes from the World Ocean's saline seawater, while fresh water accounts for nearly 1% of the total. Often referred to as the blue planet and the Pale Blue Dot. Wikipedia

  • Circumstellar habitable zone

    Range of orbits around a star within which a planetary surface can support liquid water given sufficient atmospheric pressure. The bounds of the CHZ are based on Earth's position in the Solar System and the amount of radiant energy it receives from the Sun. Wikipedia
