The precision with which mean skin temperature could be estimated from some few points on clothed persons in a cool environment was studied. The skin temperature data were obtained from experiments on 10 clothed persons who were resting and working at an environmental temperature of 10‡ C. With these data, eleven calculation formulas in current use were compared to a “reference mean skin temperature” based on a weighting formula involving 13 local skin temperatures.
