The NZSS Produces a number of Publications:
The Tomo Times is published and distributed to financial members about every three months. It covers news of caving discoveries, social events, club news, NZSS Council business, advertising, caving trips, etc. The Editor will gratefully receive articles that Society members send in.
The New Zealand Speleological Bulletin is a long-term record of cave exploration in New Zealand, and also publishes articles on cave science topics and other items of caving interest. Articles about New Zealand caving, caves and cavers are welcome.
A contents list of recent bulletins is available at New Zealand Speleological Bulletin index
The Society publishes occasional publications from time to time on various topics. Those to date are:
The NZSS Handbook contains important information for NZSS members.
The handbook gives a brief history of the society, and a description of caving in New Zealand.
There are sections on cave leadership, search and rescue, conservation and ethics, and administration and constitution of the society. A “must read” for all members!
This document aims to encourage the maximization of knowledge of incident management prior to deployment and use of common terminology and functions within CaveSAR to assist regional and national integration.
It has been produced by NZSS for use by its members in response to CaveSAR operations.
It is intended to be a starting point for local areas to use and adapt depending on their needs for local CaveSAR and provide understanding and guidance.
This is a compilation of all New Zealand cave maps published by the Society, reproduced in A4 format. The first edition, produced in 1980, covered the whole country in one volume. In 1988 The North Island Cave Atlas (N.Z. Cave Atlas - Volume 1) of just North Island caves was published (currently being updated). The South Island Cave Atlas (N.Z. Cave Atlas - Volume 2) was published in 1990 and revised in 1993 and 2004.
