Abstract : This report considers temperatures which produce problems for the successful operation of many types of equipment and the proper functioning of personnel engaged in vigorous activity. Special emphasis is placed on wet-bulb temperatures in humid tropics areas, where continuously high values may have harmful physiological effects on men and hasten the deterioration of material. The accompanying textual material is designed to facilitate interpretation of the maps, even by those without a scientific background in climatology. Considerable attention is given to the methods of constructing the maps and to analyses of there accuracy.
