Abstract
The author participated in an international palaeontological expedition to the High Arctic from July 6 to August 1, 1989. This account of the expedition includes general observations on such subjects as clothing, tents, drinking water, emergency fuel, terrain, visual perception, mosquitoes, animals, river crossings, etc. An extended trial of a prototype cold weather clothing system was carried out in conjunction with daily activities. Measurements of the effect of the low-angle sunshine on the temperature of an absorbing vertical cylinder confirm that solar radiation is an important factor in the sensation of "wet-cold".
