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.

Inthe IGY was announced. International Geophysical Year (IGY), worldwide program of geophysical research that was conducted from July to December IGY was directed toward a systematic study of the Earth and its planetary environment.

The IGY encompassed research in 11 fields of geophysics. That evening, these scientists planted the seeds of what would eventually be called the International Geophysical Year (IGY). Twenty years later, inthe 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.

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 28conducted by the U.S. National Committee for the International Geophysical Year just before the IGY program formally began.
