Human-environment interaction involves the same principles discussed in Ch. 12. However, we need to look at three additional factors. They are clothing, sweating, and comfort. These are examined by considering survival in cold environments, survival in hot environments, and the human thermoneutral energy budget. The variables that need to be considered are metabolic rate, surface area, latent heat exchange, body temperature, and body (clothing and tissue) conductance.
