Abstract : The purpose of this Cold Weather Handbook is to provide a consolidated training publication in support of the United States Navy's Surface Ship Fleet Arctic/Cold Weather Operations. The uniqueness of this Handbook is its explicit, single-source approach in addressing current problems facing the fleet in cold weather. It draws heavily upon lessons learned in recent operations and exercises and uses that collective experience to provide solutions to some critical cold weather operations problems.
