Surviving in the desert

This table "Days of expected survival in the desert under two conditions" has been originally published in "Physiology of Man in the Desert" by E. F. Adolph and Associates, New York, Interscience Publishers, 1947. Note that survival time is not appreciably increased until available water is about 4 quarts, the amount necessary to maintain water balance for one day at high temperatures. Utilization of shade or saving a few degrees of temperature is as effectiv and as important in increasing survival time as water.
