Drainage Divide
A DRAINAGE DIVIDE, WATER DIVIDE, DIVIDE, RIDGELINE, WATERSHED, WATER PARTING, is the line that separates neighbouring drainage basins . In hilly country, the divide lies along topographical ridges , and may be in the form of a single range of hills or mountains , known as a dividing range. In flat country—especially where the ground is marshy —the divide may be harder to discern. A valley floor divide is a low drainage divide that runs across a valley, sometimes created by deposition or stream capture . Since ridgelines are relatively easy to see and agree about, drainage divides are often natural borders defining political boundaries, as with the 18th century North America Royal Proclamation of 1763

List Of Continents By GDP (nominal)
This article includes a LIST OF CONTINENTS OF THE WORLD SORTED BY THEIR GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT (GDP), the market value of all final goods and services from a continent in a given year. The GDP dollar estimates presented here are calculated at market or government official exchange rates . The figures presented here do not take into account differences in the cost of living in different countries, and the results can vary greatly from one year to another based on fluctuations in the exchange rates of the country's currency . Such fluctuations may change a continents ranking from one year to the next, even though they often make little or no difference to the standard of living of its population. Therefore, these figures should be used with caution. Comparisons of national wealth are also frequently made on the basis of purchasing power parity (PPP), to adjust for differences in the cost of living in different countries
