Abstract:

Militarily important environmental factors within mainland Southeast Asia are topics of seventeen thematic maps in this report. The relationships between military operations and selected natural and cultural phenomena have been analyzed and mapped. Supplementing the cartographic coverage are narrative discussions, graphs, and tables. Nine of the maps relate directly and quantitatively to predictable physiological stress conditions, to food storage life expectancies, and to estimated visibility distances within different vegetational types. These maps are based on laboratory andor field test determinations. Other maps in the series are concerned with the distributional relationships of such environmental factors as ethnolinguistic groups, ethnic minority types, malaria endemicity, and cloudiness regimes. This study has been developed with the expectation that it will serve as a useful aid in military planning for Southeast Asia, and that it may also serve as a prototype for similar studies of other regions.
