Where on Google Earth is the fast-moving, challenging, audience-participation game of identifying the location of a geologically interesting site from its Google Earth image. Having been procrastinating at just the right time to catch the last one (Chaîne des Puys, France), I have the privilege of choosing the next location.
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 mark at the midpoint of the scale bar says 963 m and the eye altitude is 3.52 km. Posting time is 8:04 am Eastern US time.
