Primarily, GRAVITY!


"Configuration" is a rather broad term. Assuming the terrain is more the realm of Earth Science, related to Astronomy the relevant force is gravity.

The accretion of material to form a planetary body, the particular distance and orbit around the sun, and the gravitational interaction with other solar bodies (especially the Moon) all contributed to the formation of the planet we call "Earth".
