Abstract
The International Biological Program (IBP) is the successor in the biological field to the International Geophysical Year in the physical field. This report discusses one of the methods, approved by a Working Party of the IBP, for determining the cold tolerance of various ethnic groups under field conditions. A standardized cold stress for an eight-hour period during the night is provided by a portable environmental chamber developed by the contractor. Measurements of metabolism and body temperature, with a high degree of accuracy, and the obtaining of EEG and EMG tracings during the cold exposure, are necessary. These parameters can be obtained by either modifying standard medical laboratory equipment available from commercial sources, or constructing new equipment according to the instructions of the contractor.

Abstract
Transit workers (240 industry workers, aged 19-50) living in the European part of Fussia and flying to work in the northern regions of West Siberia (Tyumen district) were observed. Psychological status was determined by the method to Taylor. Biological rhythms, chemical control of ventilation, oxygen (O2) and carbon dioxide (CO2) consumption, body temperature, and hormone-metabolic data were assessed. The analysis of illness for the Nadymgazprom Enterprise was carried out in accordance with the medical charts. One may notice a certain cyclic recurrence of the adaptation process. Thus, the first stage of vigorous rearrangement of the psycho-physiological regulation system is followed by a period of relative stability, the result of initiation of compensatory processes. Compensation mechanisms, however, may become disabled, triggering development of a disadaptive state. Results of these scientific investigations were used to introduce new transit work regimens at Nadymgazprom Enterprise.
