Abstract: The Wet-BulbGlobe Temperature (WBGT) is used extensively by the US military (and others) to provide guidance for work and rest periods as well as water intake by Soldiers in a hot environment. In an effort to help validate a predictive WBGT algorithm in use in a heat-stress-guidance application, WBGT data measurements were performed at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida, in August 2014. The data and a brief data analysis are included in this report.
