I'm a Post-Doctoral Fellow in atmospheric remote sensing at the University of Reading in Reading, Berkshire, England, United Kingdom. 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.

It's no wonder wealth inequality is far larger than income inequality. Wealth is the integral of income, and in fact integrated over generations.

1% can refer to income or to wealth.

comment Are replica unarmed explosives allowed in hand luggage?
You most likely are not allowed to take this on a train, either. Is it even legal to possess? I believe that in The Netherlands, possession would be illegal.

comment Formats of texts from wikisource?
@jknappen That's more of a (mediawiki) technical question. There's probably a forum somewhere on wikimedia to ask it.

comment What's the minimum number of days needed for reporting a "monthly average" of daily satellite retrievals?
On a single map you can't show such information, but in the actual level-3 data files one should have multiple fields, one for mean, one for count, and probably others showing other statistics.
