'Zealandia' is the 8th continent on Earth.!? After 375 years..!?
'Zealandia' is the 8th continent on Earth. Scientists discovered it after about 375 years. About 83 million years ago, geological forces caused the supercontinent Gondwana to break up, the researchers explained. This led to the formation of the seven continents that exist today. This same process contributed to the creation of Zeelandia. Of this, 94% is currently submerged, of which only 6% is new zealand and its nearby islands. Geoscientists discover Zealandia, Earth's 8th 'continent: After nearly 375 years, geoscientists have made a discovery, revealing the existence of a long-unrecognized 8th continent. A team consisting of geologists and seismologists prepared a map of this continent. As Phys.org reports.. an updated map of the 8th continent 'Zealandia', also known as Te Riu-a-Maui, has been meticulously created. The researchers discovered this by analyzing data collected from dredged rock samples collected from the sea floor. Their findings were published in the journal Tectonics.
Only part of Zealandia's landmass is divided into islands, including New Zealand. Geologist Andy Tulloch of new zealand Crown Research Institute GNS Science, played a key role in the discovery.
