I'm a Post-Doctoral Fellow in atmospheric remote sensing at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I first came to Stack Exchange for practical reasons: Tex.SE has been of major help when I wrote my licentiate (midterm) thesis. Since then, I have discovered the joy of many websites. As my network profile will show, I'm interested in travel, outdoor, scientific skepticism, and as I work in academia, also in academia and LaTeX.

comment Roping together on an icy path?
Elevation doesn't say a lot about the conditions without further climate information. I've been at 1800 metre both in places where this is in the land of rocks and ice, and in places where this is evergreen forest that almost never sees snow.

Isn't warming up a matter of a good sleeping bag?

comment How do you keep the inside of your backpack organized?
I did? Immediately after I'm writing but for optimal packing efficiency, it is much better to pack everything separately as much as possible. I shall elaborate a bit more.

comment What are the consequences of — illegally — using a 446 MHz PMR in the North American wilderness?
Oh, I never thought of PMR to contact emergency services. I usually take a personal locator beacon for that, or possibly a satellite phone.
