I just couldn’t resist the Where on Google Earth challenge this week (It is a lot more fun the grading or dealing with misbehaving laboratory equipment.) After passing off WoGE #225 to Chris of Science Wars, I couldn’t help but claim it back by identifying a very small chunk of Welsh coastline pictured in WoGE #226. I have to say that the British green landscape and stone walls are a big help in narrowing down what part of the world to search.
For those that haven’t played before, here’s a quick overview of the rules. First one to correctly identify the latitude and longitude of the center of the image AND say something about what makes this area geologically interesting…wins. The prize is getting to pick the next WoGE location and hosting it on your blog or picking a geoblogger to host it for you. If you’ve won WoGE in the past, you have to wait one hour before submitting your answer for each of your previous wins (the Schott Rule). If you don’t remember how many times you’ve won, you can look at Ron Schott’s kmz file.
The number on the middle of the scale bar says 3.42 km which corresponds to an eye altitude of ~12 km.
