Where on (Google) Earth #125?

It’s been a busy couple of weeks of natural disasters (and a busier week or so of end of the semester tasks in the real world keeping me from posting since winning WoGE#124 – sorry for the delay), so I figure it’s only fitting that this WoGE falls into that general category. Instead of choosing the site of one of the past couple of weeks geologic hazards (too easy), I’m going back to a historical example. The oblique view in this case is meant to emulate that of a well-known photograph of this site taken in the immediate aftermath of the event. As always, the winner is the person who first posts the location of the feature(s) in question (latitude and longitude will suffice), but a full accounting of the geologic phenomenon, the historical event illustrated by this WoGE, and an account of how it relates to current geological events in the news would earn you even more adulation.

I will invoke the Schott Rule [post time: 12:55 CDT] because this one’s too easy for many of you and we need some new winners. This only affects previous winners.

[Update] Since it’s been 24 hours without even a nibble, I’ll go ahead and show you the relevant photo:

Hmmm, I wonder what that could be?

Does that help?

Where on (Google) Earth #123?

As I was saying at the end of the second PodClast, Péter Luffi has been hammering me with his two most recent WoGEs. And it’s hurt my blogging over the last month or so! Okay, that’s being a bit facetious, but there’s a grain of truth to it. I really think that not having new WoGEs to post has interrupted the flow of my blogging. Fortunately, I’m back in the win column, so hopefully it’ll get my blog juices flowing. Lord knows there have been plenty of exciting geologic events in the news to blog about as well as a host of new voices in the geoblogosphere. You will not, however, see a tag cloud here – I do have some standards. ;-)

For a little change of pace I’m going back to an oblique view to highlight some topography. As always, the winner is the person who first posts the location of the feature(s) in question (latitude and longitude will suffice), but there’s lots of good geology to explain if you recognize the area…

No Schott Rule, since I’m not playing this round. :-)
