Mountains on the Earth

The different landscapes that we analysed in the previous section are distributed in the five continents of the Earth. Observing the Earth, it is possible to notice that most of emerged lands are occupied by mountains (76%), while plains only amount to 33% of the Earth’s surface. Specifically, mountains are distributed on 50% of the entire continental surface.
