This Man ‘Travels’ In Google Maps And Some Of The Things He Has Discovered Are Bizarre

It is hard to imagine navigating the streets of the world without help from Google Maps. However, while most of us use the app to find our way around, there are some people who use the Google Earth option to ‘travel’ the world or look for interesting occurrences in the endless collection of images.

One Imgur user could put Google Earth under his hobbies, as the guy spends a lot of time exploring various areas of the map and snapping screenshots of places he found most interesting. Posting under the name geologistsmakethebedrock, this man has shared a couple of galleries with the internet people, adding short descriptions to each image. “I really like to peruse Google Earth looking for cool things. My captions either come from basic internet research of my guess about what’s happening” he explained.

Most of his screenshots feature various land formations that draw the eye, as well as some man-made structures that seem to have a story behind them. Google Earth has been a thing since 2001, though back then it was only in the initial stage of what it eventually became. Within years the project evolved and from flat, often puzzle-like map we eventually got realistic 3D depictions of many countries across the globe. The project even expended further than Earth’s boundaries as Google launched such branches as Google Mars and Google Moon.

There’s a lot out there to explore, so if you’re lacking funds or the ability to go on long flights to see Norwegian fjords or Mexican deserts, power up the app and see where it takes you. Oh, but before that, don’t forget to check out what geologistsmakethebedrock shared and vote for your favorite snaps!

There is a name for this type of dune, but I can’t remember what it is. They happen when there is enough wind to migrate dunes, but not enough sand.”

“I read about this one on a forum. I think it’s true. The GPS point is the location of the German battleship, Tirpitz when it was sunk by British bombers on 11/12/1944. The Tirpitz was the sister ship of the famous Bismarck. It was also the last serious German surface naval threat. The RAF and Royal Navy played a long cat and mouse game with the Tirpitz as it hid out in Norwegian fjords. It was eventually located and Lancaster bombers attached at high altitude with huge bombs. The 3 round holes (2 in the water, 1 on land) are likely craters from missed bombs. They don’t make sense geologically”

“These are impact craters in the Canadian Shield, the oldest continental crust of the North American plate. Because it’s been tectonically inactive for a long time and continental glaciers removed most of the topsoil, many craters are visible. This lake is called Lac a l’Eau Claire. There is a lot of evidence that the lake is formed by 2 impact craters. It was originally thought that the 2 impacts were formed at the same time by an asteroid that split or was a binary asteroid. There is some very compelling evidence that these are 2 different impacts, ~200 million years apart. It might seem like a million to one shot that 2 impacts could be so close, but we see many overlapping craters on other planets. The low probability thing for me is that the craters were both preserved and exposed.”

“I’m always interested in how underlying geology affects human activity. This is a large alluvial fan in Kazakhstan. It must be more fertile than the surrounding areas because it is terraced and cultivated. It also seems to have a more active water source than most fans so irrigation is probably a factor too.”

My guess is that the darker rock intruded into the lighter rock due to nearby volcanic activity. Nearby Vinalhaven Island is a very old volcano, and the direction kind of fits.”

“Salt Glacier in the mountains of Iran. There are many salt deposits around the world. They usually form when a seaway gets isolated or slightly isolated from a larger ocean. Evaporation will eventually make the small sea oversaturated and salts can precipitate on the sea floor. Some of these deposits can be Kms thick. When the salt gets pressured, either by the weight of sediments above or from tectonics, the salt will flow like a liquid. I’m guessing that this salt was pushed to the surface by tectonics. It’s now flowing from the ridge down into the valley.”

“This one is a bit of a puzzle (also a random place in the Northwest Territories). There is a foliation or lineation in the land forms. There is a NW-SE trend to stuff. What caused that? These landforms are similar to things formed by flowing water or air. If that is the case, then the flow direction would come from the SE. The main shaper of landforms at this latitude were the last round of glaciers. They would have come from the N or NE. Maybe the land has been shaped by a couple thousand years of prevailing winds from the SE? Anyone from the middle of no-where Canada?”

“After the pretty bad performance of the US in the war of 1812, the federal government realized some things. They needed to maintain a larger, federally controlled, standing army. The states militias were just not up to the task when it came to real war. They also needed to have a larger navy. Privateers weren’t all that great either. Finally, they needed to fortify the border. The royal navy was able to sail all up in our waterways to deploy land forces. Since half of the US border was coastal, this meant lots of coastal forts to shoot at ships. Across the channel is Fort Morgan, a beautiful star fort. I’ve never been to this one, but it looks to be in very good shape. You can see the retrofitting of more modern gun emplacements.”

“While there you can take a free guided tour of Fort Massachusetts. This fort was also designed to face its main threat from a primary direction. This one is definitely worth checking out. The fort was still under construction when the Civil War started, but unlike most forts, the confederate government finished it. It certainly helped that they made it a POW camp with all that free labor. You can see the change in the bricks in the walls. The lower bricks were pre war and from New York. The upper bricks are post war and from New Orleans. You can see this in the picture on Wikipedia. Ironically, the only action this fort saw was a small gun battle with a union ship called the USS Massachusetts. ”
