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.

Seminars and conferences
    • The Sensor Data Storage System (SDSS) developed by CAIAG is the main storage system and access point for the raw meteorological and hydrological data of all CAWa and other ROMPS stations in Central Asia as well as for a lot of the radar altimetry data of Asian lakes/reservoirs (including Meta data).
    • A graphic user interface offers the possibility to interactively retrieve data of the CAWa stations and selected lakes/reservoirs with a web browser in several languages (English, Russian, and German). With this open-access system, the data of the time-series can be displayed and downloaded as XML or CSV file, which you can open by Microsoft Excel or in data analysis tools such as R. The data from the stations are seamlessly integrated into the database of the SDSS after their arrival.

 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.

View of international community on publications of Kyrgyzstan in the "Thomson Reuters"


 On 24 October 2014 the meeting was held in the Higher Certification Committee and where a talk on “View of international community on publications of Kyrgyzstan in the Thomson Reuters Web of Science as a representation of scientific achievements of the Republic: actual state and development prospects" was given. In addition, an issue of distributing publications among organizations (204-2014) was discussed. The Central-Asian Institute for Applied Geosciences (CAIAG) published 20 works.

International conference "Remote- and Ground-based Earth Observations in Central Asia" dedicated to the 10-year anniversary of CAIAG


On 08-09 September, 2014 CAIAG held the international conference “Remote and Ground-based Earth Observations in Central Asia”, dedicated to the 10-year anniversary of CAIAG. The international conference was held in the conference-hall of the hotel Jannat. The organizers were: Central-Asian Institute for Applied Geosciences (CAIAG), German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ).

The main objectives of the conference were: discussion of the most important results of remote and ground-based Earth observations in Central Asia, obtained in recent years, identification of the most priority research areas, exchange of experience both in the field of research, and information processing, storage and management.
