4.4 billion years ago Earth had no mountains and was covered with water, say scientists

Tiny grains of zircon have allowed two scientists at Australian National University to paint a portrait of Earth over four billion years ago. Their scrutiny of the mineral grains - the oldest fragments of Earth we've ever uncovered - led them to think our world was a much different place back then. They say Earth was mountainless and barren, and probably only had a few islands poking up above the water blanketing the rest of the planet.
