A biome is geographically contiguous area on the surface of a celestial body. They yield different experimental data (and flavor text). Currently[outdated], only Kerbin and Mün have biomes. Taking data at different altitudes (including 'on the ground', i.e. surface samples) over different biomes reveals different Science!

Kerbin Biomes

  • Grasslands
  • Ice Caps (North/South Polar Caps do not yield different data)
  • Tundra
  • Mountain
  • Badlands
  • Desert
  • Water (Oceans)
  • Highlands
  • Shores

- Rivers and lakes are not a special boime (confirmed)

Mün Biomes

  • Highlands
  • Midlands
  • Polar Lowlands (North/South Polar Lowlands seem to register as the same biome (verification requested))
  • Poles (North/South Poles seem to register as the same biome (verification requested))
  • Farside Crater
  • East Farside Crater
  • Northwest Crater
  • Northern Basin
  • East Crater
  • Southwest Crater
  • Twin craters
