In million year ago zealandia was a big part of current one of 7 continent India . Million year back ago earth surface divided into two crust first is continental and other was oceanic and into 14 major tectonic plates . With the diffusion of crust the one big part of Asia continent to understand and investigate earth history many scientists are regularly research about the processes going over the period and evolution of the earth . Zealandia also known as New Zealand continent due to its very near to New Zealand . That sinks and away from australia 60-85 million year ago . The name and concept for Zealandia were proposed by Bruce Luyendyk in 1995.

Already you may be know about the Dinosaurs and Many Other Creatures extinct and died out of 66 million year ago that time many big continents there not broke into smaller continents . Everything going according to going time many unexpected real things goes hidden or lost in the world . After many years of research about geological era many scientist finding the facts that part of huge land or a continent loss during earth crust dividing into many smaller part .
Zealandia one of them who lost from the world and hidden from all now revealed by team of 32 scientist comes from 12 countries after study of south pacific and water surrounding near new zealand scientist discovered hidden continent that are lost and sunken on sea water . It is the world largest micro-continent , more than the twice the size of next largest micro-continent and more than half of the Australian Continent . All this happen due to change in tectonic plates of earth and global climate changes .
Zealandia near by southwest pacific ocean is made up of continental crust . The region has elevated bathymetry relative to surrounding oceanic crust, diverse and silica-rich rocks, and relatively thick and low-velocity crustal structure. Its isolation from Australia and large area support its definition as a continent—Zealandia. Zealandia was formerly part of Gondwana.
Today it is 94% submerged, mainly as a result of widespread Late Cretaceous crustal thinning preceding super continent breakup and consequent isostatic balance.
