WoGE #459

The memory works in mysterious ways, which helped me solve Felix' WoGE #458 very fast. In fact it took me less than a minute to realise what it had to be, the rest of the time was trying to remember the name of the place so I could find it on the map. :D

These days, the eyes (and webcams) of Norway are on the mountain "Mannen" which seems to be about to fall into the valley below (see for more info).

So, thinking about landslides, I present WoGE #459:

As usual, post a comment with latitude and longitude and write something about the (geologic/geographic/hydrographic) feature in the picture. If you win, you get to host the next one.

Previous WoGEs are collected by Felix on his blog and a KML file.

  1. Ole: I also 'like to have things done before the weekend.' So:
    -45.395°, -72.964° Aysén Fjord earthquake, Chile.

    The Aysén Fjord earthquakes were a series of seismic events of different magnitudes that occurred in Aysén Fjord from January 22, 2007, to April 22. The biggest [...] occured on April 21 and reached a felt intensity of VII on the Mercalli intensity scale. On the moment magnitude scale, the earthquake reached a gradation of 6.2. On the mountains around the fjord, the earthquake caused landslides that in turn created waves as high as 6m. (

  2. I am a bit surprised; I expected Laki to be easy and Aysén to be more difficult. :D

  3. Ole: I can explain. When I saw you laki picture, I scanned in great altitude over island and missed the spot (maybe because of a different color). And lately I'm impatient, so I did not go on looking. Aysen was easy as we do have structure and a coastal area.
