Submission + - Formation of an Ox Bow lake as seen by the Google Earth Time Machine (blogspot.fr) 1

djl4570 writes: An excellent study in the gradual change of geographic features as a river meander becomes an ox bow lake when the river current cuts through the meander. The same Google Earth feature can be used to view changes in urban and suburban geography. The historical data is a work in progress. The region I looked at only has images going back to 1993. Other regions will have a different mix and depth of data.
