That evening, these scientists planted the seeds of what would eventually be called the International Geophysical Year (IGY). Twenty years later, in , the scientific disciplines emphasized during the IGY would be the foundation of many of NOAA's programs and activities. The IGY was a significant event in the history of science. Berkner and Chapman proposed to the International Council of Scientific Unions that an International Geophysical Year (IGY) be planned for –58, coinciding with an approaching period of maximum solar activity, and in this was announced.   Annals of the International Geophysical Year, Volume IIB: The International Geophysical Year Meetings provides the general report and resolutions made on four meetings during the International Geophysical Year. This book is composed of four parts encompassing 13 Edition: 1. The International Geophysical Year collection contains correspondence, reports, meeting minutes, photographs, and other records documenting the programs and activities of the US National Committee for the IGY. The collection covers the years and spans approximately linear feet.

International Geophysical Year (IGY), month period from July, , through Dec., , during a period of maximum sunspot activity, designated for cooperative study of the solar-terrestrial environment by the scientists of 67 nations. The only prior combined international scientific efforts took place during the Polar Years of and The International Geophysics book series has been designed to provide a comprehensive source of detailed information on all aspects of geophysics. Intended to cover the entire range of the discipline, topics are included from a diverse range of areas such as seismology, meteorology, hydrogeology, and climate and ocean dynamics.   In President Eisenhower announced that the United States would contribute to the 75th anniversary of the International Polar Year by launching an orbiting satellite. This new scientific global initiative was to be called the International Geophysical Year (IGY) because scientists would now study the whole planet, rather than just the polar : Chuck Black. Scientists hoped Alouette I, Canada’s first satellite, would transmit data for a year, and expected it to stay in orbit for three to five device was rocketed into the upper ionosphere, more than a kilometre above the Earth, on Sept. 29, , and though long since deactivated, is .

The International Geophysical Year (IGY), Overview. The International Geophysical Year (IGY) was prompted by a lack of concise data about Earth and its land, oceans, and atmosphere. Post-World War II technology had become available to launch a worldwide research effort to solve questions concerning the physical processes, patterns, and cycles of the forces of nature—the geophysics of. The present volume assembles a group of papers covering a wide variety of topics in geophysics. These papers were presented at a special symposium, June 28 , conducted by the U.S. National Committee for the International Geophysical Year just before the IGY program formally began. 7 institutions in Canada offering Geophysics courses.
