What is eGY?

The Electronic Geophysical Year, 2007-2008 (eGY) provides an opportunity for the international geoscientific community to focus effort on a 21st Century e-Science approach to issues of data stewardship: open access to data, data preservation, data discovery, data rescue, capacity building, and outreach. The development of Virtual Observatories and Laboratories is a central feature of eGY.

eGY is an internationally-recognized resolve by the science community to achieve a step increase in making past, present, and future geoscientific data readily, rapidly, conveniently, and openly available. eGY provides the international framework and a target for stimulating and coordinating activities to make this happen. eGY focuses on themes of electronic data location and access, permission and release of data, conversion of data into modern digital form, data preservation, capacity building, particularly in developing countries, and outreach. Promoting the development of a network of virtual observatories is a central feature of eGY.

Russian eGY Committee

The Committee has been formed in the beginning of 2007 and adopted by division of Earth Sciences of RAS 26.02.2008. It includes actual and potential authors of eGY products and leading scientists in Earth sciences from wide range of Earth disciplines: 28 members from 22 research institutes in Russia. Functions in close collaboration with CODATA WG on eGY, Russian National IUGG and CODATA committees

Hosted by Geophysical Center RAS
