How much of the Earth's surface is covered with water?

71% of the earth’s surface is water-covered, and the ocean holds about 96.5 per cent of all Earth’s water. Water also exists in the form of water vapour, rivers and lakes. The amount of water that exists as groundwater, rivers, lakes, and streams would constitute just over 10.6 million km3.
