The International Geophysical Year (IGY) was an international effort to coordinate the collection of geophysical data from around the World. It marked the beginning of a new era of scientific discovery at a time when many innovative technologies were appearing. The International Polar Years (IPY) are collaborative, international efforts with intensive research foci on the polar regions.
