To be sure, Arctic expeditions are very cold (and can be quite dangerous).

U-boats, the feared German submarines, would harass Atlantic and Arctic convoys to stop them reaching port.

Very many means of transport were hazardous during WWII.

Weather conditions, whether at sea in the Atlantic, or on the Eastern European front, increased the hazards of World War II fighting.

(X-Rays are not very useful in predicting weather.)

Yet World War II accelerated the development of many technologies, including the use of X-rays in learning about weather patterns.

Antibiotic treatment as well as yearly X-rays reduced for a while the impact of tuberculosis, a much better known use of x-rays than learning about weather patterns.
