Abstract This book containing a selection of papers presented at the 2nd International Environmental Ergonomics Conference, held at Whistler, British Colombia (Canada), on 21-25 July 1986 offers a collaborative approach to the study of human performance in the face of harsh environments such as equatorial and polar regions, ocean floors and outer space, where hot, cold, wet, high- and low- pressure and other extreme conditions affect the body's physiological and cognitive functions to a significant degree.
