Central-Asian Institute for Applied Geosciences

CAIAG is a multidisciplinary institute comprising most of the geoscientific discip­lines like geology, glaciology, hydrology, limnology, climatology, geophysics, geodesy and remote sensing.

CAIAG operates dedicated monitoring networks for seismology and geodesy, a network of hydro-meteorological monitoring stations and high mountain glacier observatories.

Geodata and observational data are managed in a Geodata Information System including a Geodatabase and respective Web interfaces for easy and open access.

CAIAG has a team of scientists to organize training courses, to prepare educa­tional material and to establish knowledge transfer to the society and stake hold­ers.

Celebrating International Mountain Day in CAIAG


On 22 September 2014 the Central Asian Institute for Applied Geosciences (CAIAG) became a member of the International Mountain Partnership.

11 December is the first Mountain Day celebration for CAIAG. The General Assembly UNO called for international community to organize events on this day at all levels in order to address issues related to development of mountain regions and welfare of people. Outreach activities timed to the Day as a rule are conducted in terms of thematic book fairs, symposiums, lectures, seminars, classes in schools, scientific institutions.



Technical Training Operation and Maintenance of CAWa HyMet Hydrometeorological Monitoring Stations


December 08-12, 2014 in CAIAG  was hеld Technical Training "Operation and Maintenance of CAWa HyMet Hydrometeorological Monitoring Stations" 

The technical training was hеld in full-day lessons for 5 days. The focus was on the practical demonstration of systems, software and sensors by the lecturer and the application and implementation of the learned concepts by the participants. This course and hands-on trainings   enabled participants to install, operate and maintain a hydrometeorological monitoring station.

At the end of the training and impassioned debates, handouts and posters were distributed. The most active and successful participants of the training workshop were awarded with certificates CAWA project. The participants of the event expressed their views that supported making decision related to search and supply of information on the role and possibilities of solving problems concerning the water problems and mountain ecosystem vulnerability in each country in Central Asia.




Space-based and in-situ sENSing for dynamic vUlnerability and recover Monitoring


Distribution of the project results of the EU 7th framework program

 Framework to integrate space-based and in-situ sensing for dynamic vulnerability and recovery monitoring

  Training course on: «Monitoring and creation of the landslide database»

Landslides are one of the classic examples of multi-hazards and risk. Landslides, triggered by strong seismic events, are considered to be more destructive. Landslide processes negatively affect the population, i.e. the large landslides trigger human losses and destruction of houses and administrative buildings. They also affect infrastructures, i.e. reservoirs, railroads and highways, power lines etc.  Read more...



Water resources in the Aral basin should be efficiently used – experts

Aral02 3


The experts from Kyrgyzstan claimed about it in the workshop on problem of glaciation, held in November 11-12, 2014 in Dushanbe.

The representatives of the Kyrgyzhydromet and Central-Asian Institute for Applied Geosciences on behalf of Dr.Ryskul Usubaliev presented their results of their research and monitoring of the state of glaciers in Kyrgyzstan. They discussed the problem of glaciation under the climate change and related risks.

Taking into account a complex nature of the problem of glaciation in Kyrgyzstan there is a necessity to take measures for adaptation and efficient use of water resources in the Aral basin, and not only in the river basins’ formation area.
