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.

Чолпонбек тренинг

25 -27 November a training course «OpenQuake for  Seismic Hazard and Risk Assessment"  within  the World Bank founded  "Measuring of Seismic Risk in  Kyrgyz Republic " In this training course as trainers were experts organization GEM (Global Earthquake Model). Representatives of GFZ and ARUP  presented the aims and objectives of the project and the training course.  

The main purpose of the course was devoted to the training of local specialists to software OpenQuake which is used in modeling the possible seismic risk. Students training course got the basic skills of modeling seismic risk in various stsenarios.     

The training course was attended by 10 people. Four of them were university professors (KSUCTA - Kyrgyz State University of Construction, Transport and Architecture, International University of Innovative Technologies- IUIT), four employees of the state bodies of the Kyrgyz Republic (MES, IS NAS KR,  GIS IUIT) as well as the two of them members of CAIAG.
