I noticed this curious raised circular feature in the Great Swamp and got to wondering what the heck it might be: https://boydsmaps.com/#21.00/39.670669/-74.670715/us3depSlope1/0.00/0.00

Looking at historic aerials, I noted that that location shows a disturbance that appeared between 2017 and 2019. Upon closer inspection, I noticed that the location is littered with fallen trees: https://goo.gl/maps/uwpQEabbUPXQtJcQ9

I'm guessing that the raised circular feature was caused by the uprooted trees raising the earth. Tornado or something like that?

My guess would be a microburst.
