The Kermadecs – Science Symposium Proceedings

The Kermadecs – Science Symposium Proceedings

Straddling the known and unknown of our knowledge and understanding, frontiers have always inspired enthusiasm for scientific exploration and discovery.  Frontiers are where the unknown draws attention and where the unknown draws attention and propels curious explorers off on new and inspiring journeys.

New Zealand's Kermadec region is such a frontier - a place that has drawn explorers from all corners of the globe for generations.  From the earliest Polynesian voyagers to whalers and pioneers, sailors and conservationists, the Kermadec region has attracted those who are keen to push the boundaries, to see what lies beyond the horizon.  Today that horizon runs not only across the 630,000 square kilometres of the Karmadec seas, but also down to its furthest depths - 10,000 metres deep.
