dc.description.abstract In spite of exceedingly low temperatures combined with almost continual wind in Antarctica cold is not in actual fact a cause for complaint. This is because the impact of ambient conditions is not experienced on the body surface, a fact which can be ascribed to suitable clothing (Ant. Bull. 19:4), the design and composition of which rest on principles of physics and the application of which allows every individual to create his own most comfortable micro-climate on his body surface. These principles can, however, be nullified by dressing too warmly. en_ZA
