Where on (Google) Earth has been locked in a deep freeze for the last couple of weeks. But now that it’s been released from Antarctica’s icy grip, let’s see if we can’t shake things up a bit and get it rolling again.
For those of you who may be unfamiliar with WoGE I’d point out that it’s currently just shy of its third birthday – perhaps the longest continuously running social game in the geoblogosphere. The object is to search Google Earth until you find the tract of land pictured below. Once you’ve found it, identify its latitude and longitude in the comments to this post and do what you can to describe the geological significance of this area. The winner (first person to post the correct location and geology) will have the honor of hosting the next WoGE competition on their own Geoblog. If you haven’t won (recently) or have just been thinking about starting your own geology blog it’s a great chance to win a little exposure among your colleagues and the bragging rights that go with that.
In order to level the playing field a bit, we often invoke the Schott Rule, meaning previous winners (it’s fixed!) must wait one hour per previously solved WoGE before submitting an answer. I’ll invoke the Schott Rule this time with a posting time of 9:00 am CST (15:00 GMT).
