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.

The theme of discussion between researchers from GFZ German Research Center for Geosciences and the Central-Asian Institute for Applied Geosciences (CAIAG) in Potsdam has become how natural hazards are explored and how the knowledge can then be used to better protect the public.

During the working meeting were presented the presentations and opinions of the two sides on leading areas of Earth science, such as landslides, earthquakes, floods, etc. Also, during the meeting discussed the questions of fruitful cooperation.

One of the important issues of discussion was the solution of complex regional and global problems, such as climate change, deterioration of the environmental situation in the field of research in Central Asia.




Dynamics of natural processes, geophysical research and monitoring of natural complexes in Central Asia

Central Asia isDSC 5280 located in areas of Central Asia, characterized by seismic activity and gravitational processes, widespread throughout the territory. DSC 5282The study and observation of these processes create a good basis for creating a network for monitoring the state of the environment in Central Asia.

The obtained data allow not only to make recommendations for safe construction and living in such areas, but also to conduct studies on assessing socio-economic vulnerability and developing an adaptation policy for managing sustainable community development, especially in mountain areas. Advances in such studies and ways to further expand the scientific research of CAIAG and our partners from the German Research Center for Geophysical Research in Potsdam were discussed in end of February and in the meginning of March.

The current mee
DSC 5286ting of the researchers of the two research centers in Bishkek and Potsdam is notable for the fact that it marked the beginning of a new decade of active scientific activity of CAIAG. In the course of active discussion of scientific directions and strategy of scientific development of CAIAG, the wishes were expressed for carrying out interdisciplinary research and expanding scientific contacts of CAIAG, both at the country level and between the scientific groups of both sides.

The results of the research of CAIAG scientists are actively used by ministries and departments of not only Kyrgyzstan, but also neighboring countries in Central Asia. It is time to take serious steps towards training scientific personnel for CAIAG. CAIAG has a good material, scientific and technical base and can serve as a practical basis for achieving the objectives.
