  Article 76 Unclos New Zealand - Law of the Sea
The continental margin comprises the submerged prolongation of the land mass of the coastal State, and consists of the seabed and subsoil of the shelf, the slope and the rise.
A land mass is above sea level because of differences in the composition and density of the rocks beneath the land mass from those of the rocks of the deep ocean, and/or because of active tectonic forces that continuously drive changes in the shape of the Earth’s surface.
Land masses do not generally have a single characteristic rock type, but are the result of igneous, metamorphic, sedimentary, and tectonic processes that form complex ‘continental’ crust, distinctly different from the crust of the deep ocean floor.

 Geography of the Russia
The continuously populated land under permanent cultivation lies between the frozen wastes where the subsoil is permanently frozen to a depth of 1 to 1.5 feet from the surface (permafrost) and the desert where in summer everything is burned up.
About half of the population is concentrated in the historic lands of Eastern Slavs on about 7 percent of the entire territory between the Gulf of Finland, the Volga region, and the Central Asia.
Russian forest land comprises 96 percent of the total forest land of the former Soviet region.

 Continental Drift, Plate Tectonics and Sea-Floor Spreading: A Critical Commentary
As we penetrate different views of the distinct levels of the crust of the Earth, from that of the prima facie view of the land masses to the impenetrable depths of the ocean ridges, one is overwhelmed by the simplicity of the symmetries.
And, the land masses and the water expanses have cut out a logical picture of symmetry from wear and tear that would be acceptable to any perspective of erosion over the millions of years cited.
The numerous land masses that reflect a distance of 45-47 degrees from tip to tip reflect the degrees of the Earth's inclination in relation to the Sun (47 degrees between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn).

As well, it was pointed out that the continental land masses of South America and Africa were formed of the same sequence of geological layers and contained identical plant and animal fossils.
And God called the dry land earth; and the gathering together of the waters called He seas." So it is apparent from these two verses of scripture that the earth was a large single land mass at the time of creation.
Whatever the case, the Biblical basis for a one land mass, a mechanism for the formation of the earth's layers, and the division of the continents seems to agree with the observable evidence.

Land masses are built separate from the final map, and there is a separate algorithm for placing a land mass.
Note that since the center of the land mass is used for placement purpose, a large portion of the land mass should still be on the map.
If you choose "Calculate (Land)", then the amount of land (squares) that is generated will be divided by the two parametes given to define the range for the number of cities.

 Florida Center: Transportation, Land Use and Sustainability
Lands within the UGBs should be transit accessible, contiguous to existing development, and planned for long-term urbanization Oregon is one of the few states that has enabling legislation for UGBs.
Mass transit is, inherently, more environmentally benign and more energy-efficient than systems based on the use of personal automobile, and the most comprehensive sustainable community design theories are, in fact, developed around mass transit system.
While the buildings or land within these areas may no longer meet the needs and uses for which they were originally planned, they represent enormous potential to become new communities or neighborhoods at costs that are considerably cheaper (using both internal and external cost factors) and less environmentally damaging than building on virgin sites.

When We say, "Free the Land!", We are talking about freeing the land mass identified by the NAIM and MXGM as New Afrika.
This specific land mass is significant because it is land upon which We have lived and worked for a long time; it is land We have built upon; it is land upon which We have fought, bled, and died.

 Island Vulnerability Background
Land transportation networks for products and people tend to be cheaper than air and quicker than water transportation networks while wire-based communication and energy lifelines are easier to construct and maintain across land.
Although all are "small" (islands or states), the experience of their land formations, whether by visitors or indigenous inhabitants, is vastly different--a difference which it is not (yet) possible to discern from the present categories.
I believe a land mass by default (if it exists) would be assumed to be of larger size than the island (or else the island would become the land mass, the smaller body would become the island).

Land Mass Placement Options --------------------------- Land masses are built separate from the final map, and there is a separate algorithm for placing a land mass.
The problem with this algorithm was that all land masses over a certain size (say 100 squares or so) ended up being the same shape, a roughly circular blob.
The main problem I had with this was that small land masses tended to end up as mostly sticks with only a few additional random squares.

 Land Mass Distribution   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Question: If the Earth formed out of the primordial gas cloud, one would expect that the continents would be dispersed in a balanced configuration as the Earth cooled.
However modern theory places them together in a large land mass or "supercontinent," seemingly in an out of balanced state.
I am going to quote from two texts ["Pangaea" is the name given to the "supercontinent" which, it is believed, broke apart over 200 million years ago, into pieces which drifted apart and became the present-day continents]: From "The Solar System" by Encrenaz and Bibring, p.

Mass Audubon will develop Sanctuary-based, parcel-level, land protection plans beginning with the areas that have the most critical habitat and are most threatened.
Mass Audubon will work with land trusts and others to build capacity, particularly when there are overlapping geographic areas of interest.
The high priority that Massachusetts residents place on land protection is both a reflection of their appreciation of the beautiful and ecologically diverse state in which they reside and a recognition of the accelerating rate of development and the quickly closing window of opportunity to make a meaningful difference.

 29.2.6 zero_island_flow
Nevertheless, it is sometimes useful to be able to specify a zero net transport between two land masses.
Option zero_island_flow effectively combines the coastal perimeter cells from two arbitrary land masses into one perimeter which implies that the stream function will have the same value on both land masses; even though the land masses are not physically connected.
The right way to specify flow is to modify the conjugate gradient solver by specifying the net flow between land masses within the ``scan'' loop.

 Historical & Cultural Significance of the Bering Land Bridge National Preserve
During the time of the Bering Land Bridge, a sea level drop of approximately 300 feet during the Wisconsinan glacial period revealed a relatively flat, low-lying stretch of continental plain linking North America to Asia.
Most archeologist agree that it was across this Bering land Bridge, also called Beringia, that humans first passed from Asia to populate the Americas.
Humans were latecomers to this magnificent land mass so widely separated from other continents by vast oceans except near Earth's poles.

 Land-mass migrations of late Cretaceous mammals   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
During this period the geographical distrib- ution of Earth's land masses was apparently substantially differ- ent than it is today.
Some 375 million years ago, two large supercontinent called Laurasia and Gondwana comprised most or all of the present continental land masses, Laurasia in the north and Gondwana in the south.
This historical picture, which is the present general consensus, is the result of a large number of geological and paleobiological studies, and in paleobiology one important task is to reconstruct the land mass migrations of the fauna and flora evolving through- out these large-scale geographical alterations.

 Konigsberg's Bridge Problem
Further, if the traveler at the start of the journey leaves one land mass, then a single bridge will suffice and upon completing the journey the traveler may again only require a single bridge to reach the ending point of the journey.
Alas, all the land masses of Konigsberg have an odd number of connecting bridges and the journey that would take a traveler across all the bridges, one and only one time during the journey, proves to be impossible!
If we draw a diagram of the situation where the land masses are represented by points and the bridges are represented by arcs or line segments, we might get a figure like the one at the left.

 Radio Program #404 : Panagea   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Although secular geologists scoff at the idea, it is interesting to note that the Bible may have some answers to the "what happened to the one large land mass" question.
Genesis 10:25 states: "And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided." The word Peleg in Hebrew means literally a sudden division or great earthquake.
Whatever the case, the Biblical basis for a one land mass, a mechanism for the formation of the earth's layers, and the division of the continents agrees with the observable evidence.

 US Senate Gives UN Control Over 70% Of World's Land Mass
The United States is now bound by the international law that claims the power to dictate land use in 70% of the earth's land.
Converting forests to pasture, for example, or pasture to row crops, or crop land to subdivisions, are all uses that may lead to desertification, according to literature produced by the United Nations.
There is no distinction between federal land and privately owned land when it comes to land use under the jurisdiction of the U.N. The U.N. sees its role to be the establishment of policy -- it is up to the participating nations to see that the policy is implemented.

A watershed is an area of land that captures water in any form, such as rain, snow, or dew, and drains it to a particular stream, river, or lake.
All land is part of the watershed for some creek, stream, river or lake.
More than just an area of land, a watershed also provides us with a very useful way of looking at the area where we live.

Luckily the mass of the sea overhead may mute the effects of the eruptions on the atmosphere somewhat.
That is, occasional surviving land plant and animal life would be washed up upon its shores by the sea, from other land masses.
All this extra dry land offers places where human civilizations might spend centuries or even millennia building cities and nations, and migrating over to explore new territories-- only to have the sea take them away again in the centuries to follow (and possibily leaving some folks permanently stranded on places like islands afterwards).

The figures are further skewed by the fact that almost all of Britain's population lives in England, which is about half the land mass.
There is, in fact, a lot of spare land in Britain, but we tend not to notice it, partly because we're conditioned to think of 'the countryside' as virgin land that mustn't be violated by development.
I'm especially worried when I find out that farmers in Britain are paid to leave land fallow, but no measures are taken to rebuild it's fertlity naturally (as by grazing animals on it for the fallow years).
