  • Carlson, D.

    The visionaries and advocates of four different “international years” – the electronic Geophysical Year (eGY), the International Heliophysical Year (IHY), the International Polar Year (IPY) and the International Year of Planet Earth (IYPE) – all recognized the approach of 2007 and 2008 as an opportunity to commemorate the International Geophysical Year after the passage of 50 years. All four “Years” also sought to invigorate, advance and promote their areas of science through internationally coordinated research and outreach activities during 2007 and 2008. Representatives of the four programmes crafted a Celimontana Declaration (September 2005) avowing to cooperate among the programmes, implement activities in areas of mutual interest and communicate effectively to scientists, governments and the public.
