Biographies

The International Geophysical Year started in July 1957 and ended in December 1958. The aim for the International Geophysical Year was for the simultaneous collection of data on a world-wide basis to take place. Australia was represented by the Australian National Committee for the International Geophysical Year. The Committee's played an advisory and co-ordinating role in Australia's activities. Areas where data was collected include: aurora and airglow, cosmic rays, geomagnetism, glaciology, ionosphere physics, longitudes and latitudes, meteorology, nuclear radiation, oceanography, rockets and satellites, seismology, solar activity, and world days.
