All the water on the Earth

How much water is available on Earth?  A surprisingly small amount.  This visual from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute really brings that home.

If all the water on the planet were gathered into a ball, the radius would be only 700 km (420 miles).  The amount of freshwater available is even less than that.
