The last Where on Google Earth challenge sat for two weeks unfound, before a pair of hints led me to the classic Troodos ophiolite region. Thus, I get to tickle your brains with the next installment of this geopuzzle. I suspect this one will go pretty quickly.
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.
Posting time is 18:20 Eastern US time (23:20 GMT) on Sunday, 5 February 2012. Happy hunting.
*Sorry for the earlier SNAFU. I was defeated by WordPress’s gallery feature that allowed some of you to see the coordinates even after I thought I’d fixed my error. “100% fewer coordinates” borrowed from Maria Brumm who committed a similar error years ago.
