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.

Development of public relations

CAIAG constantly carries out its cooperation with national partners, moving to the level of practical implementation of joint plans.

In order to effectively work on seismic monitoring and analysis of earthquake data it signed an agreement on the delimitation of functions of the Institute of Seismology of the Academy of Sciences of the Kyrgyz Republic. The main condition of this agreement is a long-term basis to permanent data interchange (about seismicity and strong earthquakes occurred movements) in real time, which ultimately will provide more efficient service to ensure the safety of the entire community. It was decided that CAIAG will focus its activities on the monitoring of movement of strong, early warning and rapid response, and the Institute of Seismology is the standard seismic monitoring and research. In the event of earthquakes Seismology Institute is responsible for an urgent report on the emergency to end users and MES.

Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Kyrgyz Republic is the main partner, interested in obtaining scientific results of the Institute. Employees CAIAG available on request MOE data from seismic stations are assessing the effects of natural disasters on the ground. Annually employees CAIAG develop and submit to the forecast of the expected material most common hazardous processes and phenomena in the Kyrgyz Republic for further publication in the Yearbook of MES "Book forecasts emergencies."

CAIAG continues to cooperate with the structural units of the Ministry of Emergency Situations. State Agency for Hydrometeorology of the Kyrgyz Republic is the local partner in the regional project "Water in Central Asia". In this project, a contract for the performance of certain activities and the provision of meteorological data on the basin of the Syr Darya River.

CAIAG liaises with educational institutions in Kyrgyzstan. CAIAG provides a base for the practical training of students of specialized universities. Each year, students have practice KSUCTA in areas of GIS and surveying, Kyrgyz-Russian Slavic University (KRSU) the directions meteorology and climate, forecasting and disaster prevention, KNTU geodynamics and geo disasters. For students submitted jobs and connected to the objectives of the current projects departments. Particularly close and successful partnership is developing with the Kyrgyz Center for GIS Kyrgyz State University of Construction, Transport and Architecture (KSUCTA). In the consortium, as well as on a contract basis are carried out joint activities in the field of GIS.

In 2011 CAIAG provided an opportunity for the passage of international internships for foreign students who have participated in the preparation of the Summer School project LUCA.

In 2015, the expected arrival of a student from the University of Freiburg (Germany) to conduct research on the study of the capacity of local communities and the development of urbanization.

As a member of the Scientific and Technical Council of the Interdepartmental Commission

Civil Protection of the Kyrgyz Republic, CAIAG involved in the discussion of issues and performance of public authorities, international organizations and NGOs in the field of disaster risk management in Kyrgyzstan.

Also, in 2015 the Central Asian Institute for Applied Geosciences (CAIAG) and the Faculty of International Relations of Osh State University (Osh State University) established the General Agreement, to promote cooperation in the field of education and science.

CAWa HyMet Stations in Tajikistan

Hydro-meteorological monitoring network of the project CAWa (Central Asia Water) has been extended. The Installation of two automatic HyMet stations has been completed in Tajikistan in the beginning of May, 2012. One of them, Dupuli (DUPU), is located on the Zerafshan River 20 km East of Penjakent city. The second station Ayvaj (AYVA) is in the same-named settlement near the Kafirnigan River at the border to Afghanistan. Both stations measure different meteoparameters including air temperature and humidity, atmospheric pressure, wind rate and direction, parameters of solar radiation, soil temperature and moisture for some depths, and the amount of liquid precipitation. Both stations are supplied with GNSS receivers. Data transfer is carried out through the satellite communication system VSAT, the energy supply is provided by solar panels and batteries. The station Dupuli is equipped with hydrosensors installed on the close-by bridge and destined for the measurement of water level and current speed in the Zerafshan River. The works were executed by specialists of CAIAG, GFZ and the TajHydroMetService.

CAIAG organized the III regular Advisory Board Meeting

On August 09, 2012 Central Asian Institute of Applied Geosciences (CAIAG) organized the III regular Advisory Board Meeting. CAIAG's Research Programme for the period 2012-2013 , scientific strategy of the institute and a new organizational structure were dicussed on this meeting. Recommendation and comments proposed by members of the Advisory Board will be submitted to the Supervisory Board of the Institute.
