Terrestrial Ocean Planets


Some authors use this term for planets of roughly Earth size and mass, which are completely covered by an ocean of Earth dimensions - that means, a couple of kilometers deep. This term is sometimes used in the discussion of climate models for exoplanets. No specific planet of this kind has been discovered so far.
