Record #171308:

Rain more important than windchill for insulation loss in Svalbard reindeer fur / Christine Cuyler, Nils A. Øritsland.

Title: Rain more important than windchill for insulation loss in Svalbard reindeer fur / Christine Cuyler, Nils A. Øritsland.
Author(s): Cuyler, Christine.
Øritsland, Nils A.
Date: 2004.
In: Rangifer. (2004.), Vol. 24(1) (2004)
Abstract: Wind tunnel was used on dry and wet Svalbard reindeer fur in summer and winter samples. Varying degrees of wetness and wind velocity were tried. No evidence appeared of heat loss from dry or slightly wet fur. Heavy rain simulation dramatically raised loss, probably by evaporation and closure of air spaces. Wind was of minor importance. Svalbard deer seem better insulated than other reindeer.
