Hi! Leave me a message!

I mostly enjoy spending time adding information to and editing scientific articles, such as:

Also, I like to add (much needed, IMHO) images to articles of a scientific nature. eg. [1]

I am strongly scientifically skeptical and as such I have little patience for pseudoscience or mysticism being inserted into legitimate rational articles on Wikipedia. It seems that this is a common occurrence on Wiki and I do my best to keep NPOV in articles where this is an issue. Though sometimes it is rather difficult!! :o)

Check out my images of light source spectra, they're oh so exciting![edit]

Winkel tripel projection

The Winkel tripel projection is a modified azimuthal map projection proposed by Oswald Winkel in 1921. The arithmetic mean of the equirectangular projection and the Aitoff projection, it was intended as a compromise between minimizing three kinds of distortion: area, direction and distance.

The imagery used for the map is derived from NASA's Blue Marble summer months composite, with oceans lightened to enhance legibility and contrast.
