Where on (Google) Earth #86

Posted by Jessica Ball

Excitement! After solving my first WoGE (#85, a river in southern Turkey), I’ve been accorded the honor of hosting the next installment.

Ladies and gentlemen (and others – because I know at least a few geologists who definitely don’t fit those categories), for your viewing pleasure:

The view is oblique to the North at about 4 km altitude; because it may turn out to be pretty easy for some people, I’ll invoke the Schott Rule. For anyone (like me!) who’s new to the game, identify the location of the feature (place name and/or lat and long), and take a swing at what’s happening geology-wise. Have fun!
