One of the grand divisions of land on the globe; the main land; specifically (Phys. Geog.), a large body of land differing from an island, not merely in its size, but in its structure, which is that of a large basin bordered by mountain chains; as, the continent of North America.
one of the principle landmasses on Earth, usually Africa, Antarctica, Europe, North America, South America, Asia, Australia
A large landmass composed mostly of granitic rock. Continents rise abruptly above the deep-ocean floor and include the marginal areas submerged beneath sea level.
A large landmass covered with lighter (less dense) rocks. Since their rocks weigh less than the denser oceanic crust, continent float higher on the mantle and overide oceanic plate on colision.
A large land mass, such as Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, and South America.
The continent in which the sample was collected. Format: Dropdown box Example: North America, South America, Central America and the Caribbean
the larger land masses on the Earth's surface. There are seven continents: North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and Antarctica.
one of the main land masses of the globe (Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, South America, Australia and Antarctica).
One of the large, continuous areas of the Earth into which the land surface is divided.
one of the large landmasses of the earth; "there are seven continents"; "pioneers had to cross the continent on foot"
a large land mass containing several countries
a large piece of earth moving on an independent plate upon the Earth's crust

a largest unit of landmasses on the earth

one of the great divisions of the land on the globe.
The land mass on Earth is divided into continents. The seven current continents are Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, and South America.
A large land mass rising abruptly from the deep ocean floor, including marginal regions that are shallowly submerged. Continents constitute about one-third of the earth's surface.
One of the seven large land masses. The continents are North America, South America, Australia, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Antarctica. France is on the continent of Europe, and the United States is on the continent of North America.
The Earth's land masses are divided into 7 large landmasses called continents. The Earth's current continets are: Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, and South America.
the largest land areas. The seven continents are Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, and South America
A single large land mass.
A large area of land. There are seven continents: North and South America; Asia; Europe; Africa; Australia; Antarctica.
a huge landmass on a planet, usually made of tectonic plates that have locked together.
Europe proper (without British Isles)
A large landmass, as distinct from the oceans. The seven continents are: North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and Antarctica. There are also a group of islands in the Pacific ocean which geographers refer to as Oceania. (Oceania is not a continent.)
The seven principal land masses of the Earth - Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America and South America - are known as continents.
A continent is one of several large landmasses on Earth. They are identified by convention rather than any strict criteria, but seven areas are commonly reckoned as continents â€“ they are (in descending order of size): Asia, Africa, North America, South America, Antarctica, Europe, and Australia.
