It means "new land", in the sense of previously undiscovered places.  It was what explorers like Christopher Columbus and Captain Cook set sail to discover.  Is there not also a place named "Terra Nova" somewhere in Africa.  I am not sure.

"Terra" means 'Earth'. I know this from my electricity background. Not sure what "Nova" means but some research suggests 'new'.

Terra Nova publishes short, innovative and provocative papers of interest to a general readership and covering the broadest spectrum of the Solid Earth and Planetary Sciences. Terra Nova encompasses geology, geophysics and geochemistry, and extends to the fluid envelopes (atmosphere, the deep, environment) whenever coupling with the Solid Earth is involved.
