A study of wind chill effect at Maitri, Antarctica
Keywords:Wind chill, Temperature, Wind speed
The influence of meteorological parameters like wind and temperature determine the chillness upon the human body. The rate of heat removal from the human body by wind and low temperature was termed as Wind Chill by Siple and Passel (1945). Using the wind chill chart wind chill effects at Maitri, Antarctica during 1990 have been studied and compared with conventional value of monthly mean dry bulb and minimum temperatures. It has been observed that the wind chili temperature was about 15°-25°C lower than the dry bulb temperature when the wind speed exceeds 10 kt.
