Zealan­dia!

Sport Diver - - Dive Briefs -

Sur­prise! It turns out the Pa­cific Ocean has been hid­ing a con­ti­nent this whole time. Re­searchers con­firmed that a 2-mil­lion-square-mile land­mass dubbed Zealan­dia lies mostly un­der­wa­ter, with New Zealand at its peak. Many thought this was the case, but re­searchers re­cently ver­i­fied by find­ing that the crust is thicker than the ocean floor and the ge­ol­ogy is dis­tinct from other ar­eas. Wait a few thou­sand years and re­searchers may find traces of the an­cient hubs Florida and Texas in the deep.
