Operations in arctic components are tremendous tricky, dear, and insist excessive degrees of technical, medical and physiological fulfillment. One should still keep in mind for instance, that Alaskan oil funding onIy turned economically conceivable after the 1973-1974 expense explosion. fresh political/military issues within the Gulf have elevated curiosity within the improvement of polar assets. This convention is exclusive because it is the 1st time that clinical and technical experts drawn to the matter of diving in arctic stipulations have met in a global discussion board. improvement of the arctic assets is an issue of foreign urgency, and it pleases me that scientists from the us, Canada, the USSR, Australia and Europe have accumulated right here in Stockholm to give their adventure and to debate difficulties during this field.

Example text

1975; Ellis, 1982). With deeper dives the problems multiply rapidly. The need to use "Heliox" instead of air increases the thermal conductance of the gas, promoting heat loss from the body surface, and the high heat-carrying capacity of highly compressed gas also causes serious heat loss in respiration. This calls for a heating system to prevent gross hypothermia in deep dives lasting 4 hours, which is the standard duration of commercial dives. The conventional heating system used in the North Sea, which is very successful within limits, is to pump down hot water from the surface to flood the interior of the diving THERMAL BALANCE 25 suit, including the hands and feet.
