A World Without Spin

Map of world's oceans without centrifugal force (Esri)

Esri’s Witold Fraczek conducts a thought experiment: what if the world stopped spinning on its axis? “If the earth stood still, the oceans would gradually migrate toward the poles and cause land in the equatorial region to emerge. This would eventually result in a huge equatorial megacontinent and two large polar oceans.” Via io9.
