New Discovery / After 375 years of exploration, the eighth continent on Earth has been discovered. This continent is full of mystery.

 New Discovery / After 375 years of exploration, the eighth continent on Earth has been discovered. This continent is full of mystery.



There is a common understanding that there are seven continents in the world, but in fact there are eight continents. The name of the eighth continent is Zelandia. The first claim about the eighth volume was made by the 19th Dutch researcher Abel Tasman. A similar claim has been made in the US Geological Survey.

The U.S. Geological Survey found that the continent of Zealand was as large as the continent of Australia, but over time it sank into the ocean. The tectonic plates of this continent were identified by collecting data based on satellite images. When the continent and the water were analyzed separately from the special technology, the researchers found that the Zelandia continent is very large.


At one time the Gondwana Mahakhand existed. At that time, the Americas, Australia, Antarctica and Africa were connected to the Indian subcontinent. I.e. their plates were one, these plates separated due to periodic geological movements and new continents were created. Scientists called it Gondwana. Five percent of the land was in Zealand.


At present, the continent is submerged by up to 5% of the sea near New Zealand. Only a small part of it looks like a small island. The characteristics of that area have been differentiated to calculate the room.  Accordingly the continent should be above sea level. The land layer should be larger than the sea. However, there are differences among scientists regarding the definition of a continent. Zelandia is not considered a separate continent as it does not fit into the traditional definition.

The United States conducted the research six years after the first lawsuit was filed. Earlier, a US team led by 19th geologist Bruce Luendak conducted the study.
