    The shelf seas surrounding New Zealand/Aotearoa, a region nominally extending out to the m depth contour, are complex and varied as they sit above the submerged continent of Zealandia. Oceanography (compound of the Greek words ὠκεανός meaning "ocean" and γράφω meaning "write"), also known as oceanology, is the study of the physical and biological aspects of the is an important Earth science, which covers a wide range of topics, including ecosystem dynamics; ocean currents, waves, and geophysical fluid dynamics; plate tectonics and the .
