Where on (Google)Earth? #63

October 19, 2007

Slowly but surely, my Wo(G)E record is improving…thanks to Zoltan putting the Danube River delta up for #62. Being a lover of deltas, I knew I had seen it and it only took a minute or two to remember.

For Wo(G)E #63, I have an oblique view…no scale. The features are pretty obvious so it might be relatively easy. If you are new to Where on (Google)Earth, it is open to anyone…all you need to do is find this location put the coordinates in the comments below. Although not required, us Wo(G)E veterans try and include a little information about the geologic/geographic feature(s) and sometimes share our story of how we went about finding it.

Good luck!

And, one more thing…for you veterans out there, the Schott Rule is in effect. The Schott Rule is, and I quote:

Previous winners must wait at least one hour for each win that they have before posting a solution – other comments would be okay.

Post time is: 0820 PDT

If you are new to Wo(G)E, you are free to post the solution as soon as you find it. And the winner gets to host #64 on their blog. If you don’t have a blog, you can still play and win…we’ll just figure out the next host some other way.

    Given that this is an oblique view I think it’s important to point out that the vertical is slightly exaggerated in this view. I’m not sure, but I’d guess Brian’s settings have an elevation exaggeration (under Tools>Options>3DView) of somewhere between 1.2 and 1.5.

    yes…that’s right, VE is 1.5

    Aleutian Islands – Mount Pavlof and Pavlof Sister… Info here: http://volcano.und.edu/vwdocs/volc_images/north_america/pavlof.html

    I started out in Kamchatka, I saw the thermokarst lakes and knew it was up on the northern coasts somewhere, I was surprised to move into the Aleutians because I thought there had been quite a few WoGE up there, guess not. :)

    cheers
