Abstract : A windchill nomogram is presented as a short method of boundary-layer temperature versus wind-speed measurement. This nomogram correlates well, but it is not as definitive as the Envirometer (Frigorimeter) T-W-P-R* factor at simultaneous time-place data for personnel survival in difficult arctic polar environments. Analogous humidity and weather data also agree with the windchill nomogram. (Author)
