Water-based activities are often undertaken in cool water (15°C - 35°C), and can therefore result in thermal discomfort, which will affect the overall experience. In contrast with thermal comfort(TC) in air, very little research has been undertaken investigating TC in water. The studies presented in this thesis were designed to better understand the determinants of TC during and following immersion in cool water, at rest and during light physical activity.
