It has variously been described as a continental fragment, a microcontinent, a submerged continent, and a continent. The name and concept for Zealandia was proposed by Bruce Luyendyk in 1995. Zealandia’s status as a continent is not universally accepted, but New Zealand geologist Nick Mortimer has commented that “if it wasn’t for the ocean” it would have been recognized as such long ago. ” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zealandia 22 September 2019 Leave a ReplyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
