The basic Jamesway shelter has been used for over a decade in polar regions. It possesses characteristics which make it a logical selection for polar use however, it also has limitations which restrict its usage and decrease its efficiency. Accessories were to alleviate the structural, architectural, and utility limitations of the basic Jamesway. Prototypes of the accessories were fabricated or procured and tested. Evaluation indicated that they are applicable to polar use and augment the general usefulness of the Jamesway shelter during long- and short-term occupancy. Author
