Abstract: Zealandia is a submerged continent in the southwest Pacific Ocean that can be regarded as a rifted part of eastern Australia and West Antarctica. Described simply, the pre-Gondwana-breakup Zealandia geological record is one of a Cambrian to Early Cretaceous Gondwana convergent margin, followed by Late Cretaceous continental rifting. (auth)
