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.

Are those nautical miles or imperial miles?

comment How much do roof racks hurt gas mileage?
@MichaelBorgwardt Moreover, Three significantly different sizes are in current use: the imperial gallon (≈ 4.546 L) which is used in the United Kingdom, Canada, and some Caribbean countries; the US gallon (≈ 3.79 L), which is used in the US and some Latin American and Caribbean countries; and the least-used US dry gallon (≈ 4.40 L).. If a Canadian or Brit talks about "miles per gallon", what gallon does xe mean?

What's the purpose of a wind deflector, considering its effect is to worsen fuel efficiency?

comment Abandoned theme parks in Iceland
Are those you know of actually open to the public? It seems dangerous to walk on high unmaintained constructions.

comment What options are available for hunting feral boar on Hawaii?
Dryden, I'd consider it's on-topic on both in this case. I've had a minority viewpoint in the past, where I take a narrower interpretation of travel than others (I don't think any activity performed while travelling is necessarily on-topic). So I've stopped flagging for moving and I rather try to advertise The Great Outdoors (which needs more questions) at any relevant question.

So do railways. In my experience, meals and refreshments might be interpreted widely...
