Putting All the World’s Water into a Big Cube. By Tim Urban.

“One of the most boggling experiences I have is standing on a beach staring at the ocean. It’s just a silly amount of water. And then there’s all this water underground, and more in the atmosphere, and there are lakes and rivers and streams and marshes and swamps and snow and glaciers and ponds and puddles.”
“So I’ve been thinking about all this water and how I don’t really have a handle on how much of it there really is. It’s clear what needs to happen— I need to cube it. I need to put all the world’s water in cubes so I can look at it all at once and grasp how much there really is. It’s only fair.”
“All the water underground, on the surface, and in the atmosphere amounts to about 332 million cubic miles. That makes a cube with a side of 693 miles, whose base stretches from Indianapolis to Denver. It doesn’t feel like you could even fill the Pacific with the water in that cube, let alone everything else. So I guess the big takeaway here is that the Earth’s oceans are nothing more than a thin film on the surface of the Earth, relatively speaking.”
