National Geographic's Physical World-Ocean Floor Map reveals the earth's physical features both above and below the surface of the sea. The fractured ocean floor and terrestrial landforms are artfully rendered in shaded relief. Two corner insets show the earth's crust and world climatic zones and as with all of their world maps, National Geographic has employed the Winkel Tripel map projection to minimize landmass distortion in the higher latitudes.
