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 When (if ever) do backcountry campsites in the major Canadian national parks in the Rocky Mountains grow quiet?
@BenCrowell If I understand correctly, that's not permitted. In Jasper National Park, backcountry camping is only permitted on designated backcountry campsites, as I understand it...

@bashophil I think it depends on the hut as well.

comment What precautions are needed for caving
I've never caved, but a rope seems wise to take along.

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.
