Heading to the ‘great white north’ soon! But don’t know when…

I will be heading to Yellowknife, Northwest Territories (NWT) for the annual meeting of the Association of Earth Science Editors, 6 to 9 September 2017.

I will be making blog entries as connectivity allows. There is virtually NO cell service in many places from what I gather, and Internet connectivity is limited to towns and cities, of which there are few ‘up north’ of Whitehorse in the Yukon and NWT.

I have an introductory PowerPoint available from my Field Trips page. It will be interesting (to me) to see how closely I keep to my original planned itinerary. You can see the HTML version of the PPT at or the full-sized PDF at – a smaller PDF with 6 slides to a page, is at

For the latest, check my Facebook, Twitter (@philfarq), Instagram and YouTube presences, as those will be easiest to update on the road, I’m guessing.

Muddled meanderings around Earth…
