    What is found between New Zealand and Australia are a number of underwater sea mounts, mountains
    that rise from the sea floor about 4000 metres below to within a comparitively short distance, some of
    them, from the surface. When the sea is agitated the area above the mounts has 
    a different characterisitic
    compared to the open ocean, and could lead to speculation; such as land being near.
    Further to the north are a whole series of reefs, but not at 37 degrees south.
