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.

2 отдел РыскулFrom August 2 to 8, 2015 in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan the World Glacier Monitoring Service (WGMS) organized a summer school on mass balance measurements and analysis. The summer school was held under the project "Capacity Building and Twinning for Climate Observing Systems” (CATCOS) with the support of MeteoSwiss and Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) together with UNESCO cluster office (Almaty) in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. Theoretical training was held in Bishkek in the Central Asian Institute for Applied Geosciences (CAIAG), while the practical part took place on the West Glacier Suek (Issyk-Kul syrts). The summer school was attended by 14 people from the countries of Central Asia: Afghanistan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. Participants were trained by international expert team in the field of glacier monitoring and capacity building.

Codirector and chief of Department 4 of CAIAG on 02-06 February, 2015 participated on the 4th International Seminar.

DSC 5874 Codirector of CAIAG Bolot Moldobekov and chief of Department 4 of CAIAG Temirbek Bobushev on 02-06 February, 2015 participated on the 4th International Seminar on Human Being and Ecological Environment of Central Asia. The organizators - Key Laboratory of Oasis Ecology, Xinjiang, China. Key themes of the Conference were: LUCC of CA., Land Degradation Assessment and Ecological Restoration in CA., Ecosystem Health Assessment of CA., Conservation, Management and Sustainable Utilization Patterns of Water Resources., Central Asian Desert Biodiversity Conservation and Sustainable Development Strategy. Participants were from Turkmenistan, Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Japan, France, USA,and China. The presentations and discussions led to the conclusion on the continuation of research and development of new projects, including on the Silk Road.


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...
