AbstractThe indoor climate in a shelter as in any building results basically from the balance of heat, air and moisture exchanges between the enclosed space and its surroundings. These factors are usually highly inter-related. The level of concentration of contaminants such as odours, carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide is closely dependent on the air exchange or ventilation rate, as well as on the rate of production of these agents. Precise calculation of these exchanges is particularly difficult for a basement shelter and estimation of conditions must at present be based on approximations and in large measure on judgement.
