New Earth?

In 2 Peter 3:10 we read, “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up” [NKJV]

Yet, 2 Peter 3:13 says,  “Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.”

What is the “new earth” in 2 Peter 3:13? A lot of people think that this means that heaven will be on a refurbished earth. What input can you provide on this doctrine and passage? Thanks!
