Abstract:

Survival in the cold regions of the world involves a basic understanding of physiology, practical experience, and a thorough knowledge of survival equipment and use of natural materials. This paper summarizes knowledge in these areas as well as a lifetime of experience in northern regions of the world, primarily Norway, and knowledge gained on expeditions such as in the Himalayan mountains. It is a practical paper and if one assimilates its contents then survival in a cold environment is enhanced.
