Royal Geographical Society: EXPEDITION HANDBOOK
The Royal Geographical Society has been giving help and advice to the scientific and adventurous since 1830.

It explains why divers shouldn’t wear gloves, why sharpening machetes can affect navigation in the rainforest, and how aluminium foil can be useful in the desert. It covers every part of the world, from mountains and glaciers to savannah and jungle.
