Fiordland is a geographic region of New Zealand in the south-western corner of the South Island, comprising the western-most third of Southland. Most of Fiordland is dominated by the steep sides of the snow-capped Southern Alps, deep lakes, and its steep, glacier-carved and now ocean-flooded western valleys. The name "Fiordland" comes from a variant spelling of the Scandinavian word for this type of steep valley, "fjord".
John Hall-Jones’s most popular book is Fiordland Explored: An Illustrated History. The Fjords of Fiordland by. John Hall-Jones.

OC in this fjord-head delta relative to regional fjords in Fiordland. Results from this work will provide new. information on fjord-head deltas that will help to compare and contrast OC burial mechanisms in New. Zealand fjords and improve future estimation of OC burial in the coastal zone, especially in places where. these fjord deltaic systems are expanding. Certain redox-sensitive elements respond to changes in marine oxygen content through phase shifts and concomitant isotopic fractionation, providing new diagnostic proxies of past ocean hypoxia.

King John was reluctant to pay the ransom, and it was left to the Dowager Queen Elenaor, and Hugh Walter, the Archbishop of Canterbury, to raise the required 60,000 pounds to free Richard from his captivity. Richard was freed only to die a short time later fighting in France. Richard's later popularity rests as much on romantic wishful thinking as it does on facts. The Magna Carta The rebellious attitude of the great barons led to inevitable confrontation with John. In 1215 the barons were powerful enough to force John to sign the Magna Carta (Great Charter). Contrary to later opinion, the Magna Carta was not an outline of universal freedom and democracy.
Fiordland National Park also boasts some of New Zealand’s tallest .
Fiordland National Park also boasts some of New Zealand’s tallest waterfalls, Sutherland Falls and Lady Bowen Falls. John has done several trips in Fiordland and on his last one in 2012 – an 11-day paddle from Tuatapere to Jackson Bay – he scored unusually good weather. The Fiordland outer coast and fjord entrances are really dynamic and should only be attempted by experienced paddlers as there are limited landing opportunities and the southern coastal swells punch into the steep coastline. Often you are paddling a long way offshore to escape the steep pitch of the swells as they bounce off the walls.
