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.

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.

Temir Sariev: "The Government is on the basis of scientific evidence should strive to improve the operations"

T. Sariev noted the special role of the institution in terms of research and in promoting the solution of actual problems of Kyrgyzstan. The Prime Minister also noted the need to enhance cooperation with relevant government agencies and research institutes."The government is on the basis of scientific evidence should strive to improve its activities in this direction is necessary to actively use the information of the Central Asian Institute for Applied Geosciences", - said T. Sariev.

Титульный лист книги 1In this book, reinvented the role of the economic and geographical factors in the economic development of the country.It is emphasized that economic growth will always be unbalanced, and any attempt to administrative means to ensure the territorial balance of growth can not achieve the goal, since it does not eliminate poverty and are to the detriment of prosperity.  Finding the most effective ways to assess territorial development is forcing researchers to change their views on the system of indicators or indices, which should be in the system plan to show or help "show" different but very important relationship and the relationship between the economic development of the country's territorial peculiarities of the regions.It  revealed  the role of economic integration as a means to achieve this goal at the national and regional levels.
For researchers, graduate students and teachers of geographic, economic, business specialties of the universities, as well as specialists in the field of organization and management of territories for the purpose of socio-economic development and the optimal placement of production.
