Zealandia: New maps reveal New Zealand’s lost underwater continent

Jesse Yeung of CNN –

Under New Zealand, there lies a vast continent on the sea floor.

Once part of the same land mass as Antarctica and Australia, the lost continent of Zealandia broke off 85 million years ago and eventually sank below the ocean, where it stayed largely hidden for centuries.

Now, maps reveal new research about the underwater continent where dinosaurs once roamed — and allow the public to virtually explore it.
