One of Australia’s best non-fiction writers Michael Veitch has interviewed the men and women who worked on board CSIRO’s Marine National Facility research vessel Southern Surveyor, to produce an engaging and sometimes dramatic account of their adventures.

The book includes a chapter on Dr Steven Micklethwaite, a geologist from Monash University who ‘undiscovered’ a 27km long island in the Pacific Ocean in 2013 and changed the map of the world!
