The Waitaki Whitestone Geopark presents Exploring Continent Eight.
- How do geologists know there’s a 95% submerged continent, Te Riu-a-Maui / Zealandia, around New Zealand?
- In this illustrated talk, Nick will describe the various satellite and ship tools that are used to explore the seafloor and obtain undersea rocks.
- He will also explain how the big continental picture was assembled from many details, and give insights into the making of new maps of Zealandia.

A presentation by Nick Mortimer
Nick Mortimer is a geologist at GNS Science’s Dunedin office. He has worked on many aspects of onland and offshore regional geology and tectonics of New Zealand, Zealandia and the South West Pacific.
