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.

SDSS
    • 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.

Symposium on earthquake and landslide risk in Central Asia and Caucasus

290114Symposium on earthquake and landslide risk in Central Asia and Caucasus: exploiting remote sensing and geo-spatial information management.

 From 29 to 30 of January, 2014 in Bishkek, CAIAG and GFZ together with UNDP under the project SENSUM conducted Symposium on earthquake and landslide risk in Central Asia and Caucasus: exploiting remote sensing and geo-spatial information management.

Landslides triggered by earthquakes are one of the classic examples of a multi-hazard and risk phenomena. In fact, they represent a very prominent case where the triggered events (landslides) are on occasion more devastating than the initial act (earthquakes). Such events have a severe impact upon the communities of Central Asia and the Caucasus, which include their detrimental effect on the development of infrastructure, namely reservoirs, roads, railways, and other lifelines.

There are intensive scientific research activities being undertaken to mitigate against the impact of such hazards as landslides triggered by earthquakes and the resulting risks. Included with such efforts are the latest advances in remotely-sensed data and the widespread use of geographical information systems (GIS), which are now able to provide effective tools to both practitioners and decision-makers.

In order to discuss these issues and to present the latest developments in earthquake and landslide vulnerability and risk assessment, to discuss advances and perspectives of remote sensing and geo-spatial information management, and associated case studies, research scientists and engineers, infrastructure operators (private and public), disaster response and mitigation managers, and decision and policy makers from around the Central Asian and Caucasus regions have been invited to this meeting.

Framework of an integrated space-based and in-situ sensing for dynamic vulnerability and recover monitoring

On 27-28 January the meeting under the project SENSUM - Framework of an integrated space-based and in-situ sensing for dynamic vulnerability and recover monitoring - was conducted in CAIAG. All international project partners presented the results obtained on application of remote sensing methodologies and tools and of automatic observation systems and data processing to mitigate natural disasters (landslides, earthquakes) under the project during the first day of the meeting. The second day was devoted to discussion of current problems and plans for the year 2014.

official ceremony of assignment of seismic strong motion stations to CAIAG, Bishkek

600450.jpgOn 11th October 2013 an official ceremony of assignment of seismic strong motion stations to Central-Asian Institute of Applied Geosciences (CAIAG, Bishkek) from German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ, Potsdam), for scientific purposes under the agreement between GFZ, CAIAG, INTUIT, and Institute of Seismology, was conducted.

The Network SOSEWIN consists of 60 accelometers and aimed to record strong earthquake motionsThese sensors have been installed in 7 strategic important public and private buildings. The stations are equipped with wireless communication system, what allows transmitting data in a real time mode to the centre of data management in CAIAG and GFZ.

 The network monitors the behaviour of buildings experiencing vibrations due to earthquakes and will enable to obtain the dynamic properties of the buildings.

 Installed network for Bishkek city creates a foundation for the creation of earthquake early warning and rapid response system in future in Kyrgyzstan and has a strategic importance for security of the population in the territory of Bishkek city.   

In the period from 24 to 26 April, 2013 the workshop within SENSUM

thumb sensum1 In the period from 24 to 26 April, 2013 the workshop within SENSUM «Framework to integrate space-based and in-situ sensing for dynamic vulnerability and recovery monitoring» project, implemented under 7th Framework Program of the European Commission (FP7-COOPERATION-SPACE-2012), was held in the Central-Asian Institute for Applied Geosciences (CAIAG). The project was focused on approbation of innovative methods and software tools for dynamic disaster risk and vulnerability monitoring with various resolutions, as well as planning and monitoring of recovery measures in case of emergencies. Methods, applied in the present project, are based on current and prospective space-based technologies and original approaches to in-situ sensing, which will enable to identify location and assess disaster risk operatively.Partners of the present project will be 8 organizations from European and Central-Asian countries, as well as Central-Asian Institute for Applied Geosciences (CAIAG). The leading organization of the project is the German Research Centre for Geosciences, Potsdam.
