Abstract

Monochromatic and colored thermographies were used to visualize skin temperatures during exercise without involvement of sweating. Skin temperature began to fall immediately at the onset of exercise, remained low during exercise and rose rapidly after cessation of exercise. Increased work intensities produced a proportional fall in skin temperature and greater surface area of lowered temperature.
