Abstract
A device is described that facilitates the calculation of the wet bulb - globe temperature index. It consists of a small nomogram on which two scales, representing the dry bulb temperature, the natural wet bulb temperature, and the globe temperature, are inscribed so that reference to these scales with two movable cursors results in computation of the WBGT index at a third scale.
