Abstract
With the explosive increase in activities in the Canadian North involving the search, retrieval and transport of raw materials from remote and almost inaccessible regions, a growing need arises for more practical and comprehensive information pertaining to the problems encountered by man living and travelling in Polar regions. A commentary review and summary is given of the energy expenditure, caloric requirements and the changes in body composition that have been observed to occur during a variety of modes of surface travel presently employed throughout the Polar regions of the world.
