 It's about one-six-hundredth as big as Earth's Oceans In other words, 2,434,000 cubic kilometers is 0.0017 times the size of Earth's Oceans, and the size of Earth's Oceans is 590 times that amount. (Total water volume of Atlantic, Pacific, Indian, Arctic, and Southern Oceans) (estimated) Over 97% of the Earth's water is found in the planet's five oceans for a total volume of about 1.4 billion cubic km. The Pacific Ocean is the largest ocean, covering 165,760,000 sq. km — more than double the area of the Atlantic Ocean at 82,400,000 sq. km. It's about as big as The Gulf of Mexico (water volume)The Gulf of Mexico contains 2,434,000 cubic kilometers of water. Every second, the Mississippi River empties 0.0000120 cubic kilometers of water into the Gulf. It's about 600 times as big as The Grand Canyon In other words, 2,434,000 cubic kilometers is 584 times the size of The Grand Canyon, and the size of The Grand Canyon is 0.00171 times that amount. (Coconino County and Mohave Counties, Arizona, near Fredonia and Grand Canyon, Arizona)A dynamic and continuously changing landscape, the Grand Canyon has an approximate volume of 4,170 cubic kilometers. The strata of the rock visible in the Canyon's walls display nearly 2 billion years of geological history. It's about 600 times as big as an Halley's Comet In other words, 2,434,000 cubic kilometers is 610 times the size of an Halley's Comet, and the size of an Halley's Comet is 0.0016 times that amount. (Comet Halley, officially "1P/Halley") (volume calculated based on 2005 dimensions) Halley's Comet, the famous comet visible to observers on Earth approximately every 76 years, has a peanut- or potato-shaped nucleus made of rock, dust, ice, and various frozen gasses. The nucleus measures approximately 15 km by 8 km by 8 km, which yields a calculated volume of 4,023 cu. km. The coma of the Comet — the trail of sublimated gasses that give the Comet its visibility — may be up to 100,000 km in length. It's about 4,500,000 times as big as Sydney Harbour In other words, 2,434,000 cubic kilometers is 4,330,000 times the size of Sydney Harbour, and the size of Sydney Harbour is 0.0000002310 times that amount. (formally Port Jackson, a.k.a. Sydney Harbor) (Sydney, New South Wales, Australia) (total estuary water volume at high tide)Lending the term "sydharb" or "sydarb" to comparable quantities of water, Sydney Harbor contains approximately 0.5620 cubic kilometers of water. Snapper Island, a onetime naval facility loocated in the Harbour, was transformed by the dredging efforts of the Australian Navy from a 2,360 sq. m (25,400 sq. ft) outcropping to a 16,500 sq. m (178,000 sq. ft) island shaped roughly in the outline of a boat. It's about 1,000,000,000 times as big as The Great Pyramid of Giza In other words, 2,434,000 cubic kilometers is 1,002,631,000 times the size of The Great Pyramid of Giza, and the size of The Great Pyramid of Giza is 0.00000000099737590 times that amount. (a.k.a. Pyramid of Khufu, a.k.a. Pyramid of Cheops) (Cairo, Egypt) (including internal hillock)The Great Pyramid of Giza has an estimated volume of 0.002427614 cubic kilometers including its internal hillock. The 2,300,000 stones used in the construction of the pyramid weighed an average 2.27 metric tons (2.06 short tons) and were quarried at distances of up to 805 km (500 mi) away. It's about 1,500,000,000 times as big as The Melbourne Cricket Ground In other words, the size of The Melbourne Cricket Ground is 0.000000000710 times 2,434,000 cubic kilometers. (a.k.a. MCG, a.k.a. "The G") (Yarra Park, melbourne, Victoria, Australia) (internal volume)The MCG has an internal volume of approximately 0.0017 cubic kilometers. The first cricket game held on the site of the MCG was in 1853 when the Melbourne Cricket Club was granted permission to a roughly 0.04 sq. km (10-acre) area to be used "for cricket and no other purpose."
