Earth without water

Summary:Earth without its oceans and lakes. This version also contains a Normal Map.

@ #6 layman: My guess is that due to ocean currents sand and sediment probably shift over time to fill in the lower areas and adds a dimension of flatness to the ocean floor that then doesn't reflect the original terrain. I'm not a geologist or an oceanographer, just thinking.

I thought the world's highest mountains were under the seas/oceans - wouldn't the bits where you have no water be way deeper? l always thought it would be a kind of spiky ball - but, hey, l'm no geologist! Looks great! thanks!

Thanks for this beautiful work.
i'd like to found a modelisation of the earth without water/oceans, with only matter who respect the relief, i mean a "sphere". I'm searching, i'm searching.
Thank U if U can help me.

A very interesting perspective especially since I am interested in geology and plate techtonics. I think I might like it. Going to try it. Thanks.
