THE ROLE OF THE NAVIGATOR IN THE INTERNATIONAL GEOPHYSICAL YEAR

John C. Bellamy

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: The International Geophysical Year, or the "IGY," is the name given to a world-wide effort to learn more about the earth, its oceans and its atmosphere. The primary effort is to obtain coordinated observations of the world-wide distributions of various naturally occuring physical phenomena. Geopysicists from 40 or more nations are going to make unusually intensive and extensive observations during an 18-month period of those phenomena in which each investigator is primarily interested. All such observatiosn will then be interchanged for future study to determine their interrelationships.
