About this book

This award-winning book explores the dynamic worlds of New Zealand and the submerged realm of Zealandia, their natural geological wonders, bounties and dangers. In acknowledging the achievements of New Zealand's geoscientists, from the founding of the country through to the present day, A Continent on the Move shows how geoscientific research can promise a safer and more comfortable existence for all. Written in a relatively non-technical but scientifically literate style, A Continent on the Move contains more than 700 stunning photographs and images that allow readers of all backgrounds to readily grasp the scientific concepts and issues relating to New Zealand's geological history and resulting landforms. On a different level, A Continent on the Move provides a fascinating insight into the changing landscape on and surrounding the islands of New Zealand through the eyes of geoscientists. Retaining the key ingredients of the first edition and updated throughout with respect to recent scientific advances, this Second Edition contains new articles and references to the devastating 2010-11 Canterbury earthquakes and recent volcanic eruptions. As well, there are new sections on the topical subjects of mine safety, fracking, deep-sea exploration and drilling, ocean warming, responding to climate change, designing safer foundations, megathrust earthquakes, frontier minerals, and slow landslides.
