A Continent on the Move

£18.99

Product description

Developed to mark the 50th anniversary of the Geological Society of New Zealand and the International Year of Planet Earth 2008, this book explores the dynamic worlds of New Zealand and the submerged realm of Zealandia, their natural wonders, bounties and dangers. The book celebrates the achievements of New Zealand geoscientists, from the founding of the country through to the present day, and shows how geoscientific research can lead to a safer and more comfortable existence for all. Written in a relatively non-technical but scientifically literate style, the book contains more than 700 stunning photographs and illustrations that allow readers of all backgrounds to readily grasp the scientific concepts and issues. On a different level, the book provides a fascinating insight into the changing landscape on and surrounding the islands of New Zealand through the eyes of geoscientists.
Published 2008.
Hardback. Dustjacket slightly worn, but otherwise this book is in very good condition.
