We recently came across this story about scour marks on the floor of the Caspian sea. It is believed the scour marks are caused by ice that forms in the winter months and is then broken up and blown around scratching the bottom of the shallow sea.

Last month we did a couple of posts showing the growth of artificial islands in Google Earth:

Persion Gulf region
Rest of the world

Today we are looking at large land reclamation projects. As before we have only selected projects that show significant change within the range of Google Earth imagery.

The satellite Sentinel-1B was launched earlier this week. It is the second satellite of the Sentinel-1 mission, the first of which, Sentinel-1A has been in orbit since April 2014. Together they operate as a team to cover the whole planet every six days. They are not optical satellites but work with radar which can operate day or night as well as see through clouds. They follow a polar orbit similar to the one used by the Landsat satellites whose coverage pattern you can see here. We believe this map showing the deformation after a large earthquake in Chile last year was created using data gathered by Sentinel-1A.

Whenever we look at imagery update maps we notice certain patterns in the updates. One of the factors that causes these patterns is seasonality. We have long known that Google avoids snow cover in imagery where possible. This means that they largely avoid capturing imagery in winter in high latitudes. We thought it would be interesting to use the Google Earth API to see how strong an effect that was. The results were quite interesting and not what you might expect.

A recent story in the news is about a school in Sydney Australia where someone drew some phallic symbols and a rude message on their lawn. They apparently managed to remove the unwanted graffiti within hours, but not before it was captured in aerial imagery which has since been added to Google Earth.

The amazing things about Google Earth
Introduction
This blog is not officially affiliated with Google. Google Earth Blog is dedicated to sharing the best news, interesting sights, technology, and happenings for Google Earth. You will find the most amazing and interesting Google Earth news stories and content you can download right off the site. Learn how to take data from your GPS, map it into Google Earth, and share it with friends or the world. Learn when new releases of Google Earth come out, hear about new technologies and features, or check out the links to dozens of other Google Earth web sites.

When Frank Taylor first saw Google Earth he knew it would be a popular phenomena. All sorts of amazing things were going to happen because of Google Earth. And, amazing things have happened, indeed, in the 6+ years since this blog was started. Over 2000 blog posts here are a testament to Google Earth.
