Hauraki Gulf

The island-studded Hauraki Gulf is a backdrop to the work and play of New Zealand’s biggest city. Transport hub, commercial port, communications route, tourism venue, sailing paradise, marine park, and recreational, customary and commercial fishing ground, this shallow, sheltered sea has been many years in the making. The embayed coastline, estuaries and islands were shaped by volcanism, tectonic upheaval and changing sea levels. The seafloor of this shallow, semi-enclosed sea has a sweeping signature of sediment erosion, transport and deposition. Bringing together knowledge from NIWA, Land Information New Zealand and the Royal New Zealand Navy a framable high resolution seafloor map has been produced. This poster is approximately 60 x 85 cm.
