AbstractThis report summarizes the findings of the thermal mannequin testing done at the National Research Council – Institute for Ocean Technology as a continuation of the work performed in 2009 by the CORD Group Limited. The test period was done in two parts, one that included no-wind and wind conditions, and the second part was comprised of immersion tests. These were done for eight different ensembles. The tests found that wind and immersions separately caused decreases in clothing insulation values. These findings will be useful for search and rescue personnel in determining survival times for those in arctic emergency situations.
