Abstract
A one week simulated Arctic military exercise was undertaken to observe whether certain physiological changes observed during actual two week military patrols in the Canadian subarctic and Arctic could also occur within a cold climatic facility. Energy balance studies were conducted; predictions of daily energy expenditure were quite similar for both studies, respective values for the actual and simulated studies being 3358 and 3355 kcal/man/day.
