List of oceanic basins[edit]

I prefer to leave the list of basins off because they are really not that important. But someone prefers that they stayon, I wish they'd say why. Zyzzy 29 June 2005 12:13 (UTC)Zyzzy

Why list basins? It is good to see the scope of oceanic basins, to organize them by region something that the category does not do, and it allows quick access. --Bejnar (talk) 02:55, 21 April 2012 (UTC)

Bimodal hypsography[edit]

"Earth is the only known solar planet with bimodal hypsography expressed as different kinds of crust" - what do we mean to say here? Do we mean to say bimodal hypsographies do not exist on other planets, because that simply isn't true. Mars has a bimodal hypsography, see Mars and Earth topography: a preliminary comparative analysis. If this sentence wants to emphasize the presence of different kinds of crust, it should be reworded for clarity. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Diadophus (talkcontribs) 15:57, 14 June 2015 (UTC)
