Observations on the Soviet / Canadian Transpolar Ski Trek (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


This volume brings together the expertise of Soviet and Canadian laboratories studying the physical and environmental challenges of exploitation of the last human frontier - the frozen wastes of the Arctic. Individual chapters explore in detail physiological, biochemical, psychological and medical adaptations to the stresses of this unusual environment, both during chamber simulations and during the course of an 1800 km 90-day ski trek between the northernmost settlements in the USSR and Canada. A unique cross-cultural insight is obtained into the methods adopted by Soviet and Canadian laboratories in evaluating reactions to these challenges. Details of skiing efficiency will also intrigue cross-country skiing enthusiasts.
