This periodic table shows each element's relative abundance on Earth

The classic periodic table of elements is useful for understanding the relationships between the elements, but it doesn't tell us much about the chemical makeup of Earth. This periodic table, created by Professor William F. Sheehan of the University of Santa Clara and published in 1976, offers a somewhat different perspective on the elements, enlarging or shrinking each square based on the element's relative abundance on the Earth's surface.
