Abstract
Air-conditioning systems on Canadian logging operations have traditionally suffered form low reliability, as is reported in a survey of FERIC's member companies. This report is intended to provide an overview of the current situation, and to assist present and future users by informing them about air-conditioning principles, maintenance requirements, choice of components, and the use of these components in actual applications. With judicious choice, installation and care, such systems can be successfully applied in the forest industry.

Abstract
Les systèmes de climatisation de l'air utilisés dans les exploitations forestières canadiennes ont traditionnellement fait preuve de peu de fiabilité, comme le rapporte une enquête auprès des compagnies-membres. Le présent rapport vise à donner un aperçu de la situation actuelle, et à aider les utilisateurs présents et futurs en les renseignant sur les principes de la climatisation, l'entretien requis, le choix des composantes, et l'usage de ces composantes dans les applications actuelles. Ces systèes pourraient être utilisés avec succès dans l'industrie forestière, moyennant un choix judicieux ainsi qu'une installation et des soins appropriés.

Abstract
This study consisted of a comparative evaluation of seven GPS (global positioning system) units under forest conditions. The trial was divided into two parts: the first part evaluated the ergonomics and reliability of the physical components of the units, as well as the software provided with each unit: all the evaluation were conducted in the context of an average user with basic knowledge of computers. The second part of the study took the form of an operational evaluation of the units, with the goal of observing their behavior under conditions and in application typical of forest operations.

Abstract
This report chronicles the joint development of an air conditioner for forest machinery by FERIC and I & M electric rebuilders of Thunder Bay, Ontario. The air conditioner is hydraulically powered and used a compressed refrigerant gas for heat transfer. Three prototypes were designed, built, and tested in forest operations in Ontario and Quebec.

Abstract
Ce rapport décrit le développement d'un appareil de climatisation pour la machinerie forestière, mis au point conjointement par FERIC et I&M Electric Rebuilders de Thunder Bay, Ontario. L'appareil est actionné hydrauliquement et utilise un gaz réfrigérant comprimé comme agent de transport de la chaleur. Trois prototypes ont été concus, construits et mis à l'essai dans des exploitatins forestières en Ontario et au Québec.

Abstract
L'étude consiste en une évaluation comparative de 7 systèmes GPS, en conditions forestières. Cette évaluation est divisée en deux parties: la première porte sur l'ergonomie et la fiabilité des composantes physiques des systèmes, ainsi que sur les logiciels fournis avec les systèmes étudiés, le tout dans l'optique que l'utilisateur moyen de ces interfaces logicielles possède des connaissances de base en informatique. La deuxième partie est une évaluation opérationnelle, qui a pour but d'observer la comportement des récepteurs GPS dans des conditions et modes d'utilisation caractéristiques des opérations forestières.
