Where on Google Earth #172

Again, Péter's WoGE took quite some time to solve. (Or was just nobody interested?) He also suggested another twist to the game: the location should be connected to the previous one by some common concept, or “keyword”. His keyword was “type locality” – of komatiite, as it turned out. This prevented some of my nastier ideas and I settled for something nice and easy, I hope:

Where on Google Earth #172. The keyword is “Magnesium”

Where on Google Earth #172. The keyword is “Magnesium”

For any new players to Where on (Google) Earth, simply post a comment with latitude and longitude (or a description of the location) and write something about what the features in the picture are, or how they have developed. Also you need to explain how the keyword fits in there. If you win, you get to host the next one.

Because I think that this WoGE is rather easy, I invoke Schott's Rule: former winners have to wait 1 hour for each WoGE they got right.

Good luck!

    It´s the type locality for the Mg-bearing Dolomite - the Dolomite mountains with the artificial dam lake of "Fedaia and the Marmolada (and glacier - despite the fact it is one of the rare calcareous reef-remains that still exist), ca 11°52`45´´ E and 46°27´23´´ N

    On the right top then the true reef Dolomite constructions of the "Sella" stock, then the Langkofel massiv, and on the left the onset of the Rosengarten.

    David, that's right!

    As I realised only after posting, I hit rather close to your research area. 😉 (And I couldn't even let go of the type locality thought…)

    So now it's your turn to find a nice puzzle! Just post the link to your WoGE here.

    I couldn´t resist to answer - maybe geological pride?

    I tentatively posted the 173 WoGE - hope it follows the rules and it´s not to hard...
