planning and conferences for the
IGY.
The data and results of ob-
servation will be stored for study
by present-day and future sci-
entists in about forty volumes of
the Annals.
The bottleneck, as Prof. Chap-
man put it, is in processing the
great volume of information that
has been gathered. It may be well
over 15 or 20 years before the data

can be analyzed and results inter-
preted.
IGY officials have a solution
to this problem as well.
Approximately 10,000 scientists
participating in the IGY have been
amassing millions and millions of
observations and hundreds of
miles of record and film. To cata-
logue, store, and make available
the observations taken by these
scientists three world data cen-
ters-including ones in the United
States and Russia are being estab-
lished to serve as primary reposi-
tories of the data.
Either the original material or
copies of it will be deposited in
these archives. Each center will
allow scientific bodies and their
scientists access to all IGY ma-
terial in its possession and will
provide copies of the data at
cost. The data of meteorological
observations recorded on micro-
films, for instance, will be sold at
a cost of about $6,000.
THE PROGRAM has been much
more successful than that was
expected. Prof. Chapman and
Berkner did not expect so many
countries to participate or so many
subjects to be included.
Everything went as planned
except for a little disturbance due
to political reasons-the People's
Republic of China withdrew when
the decision to include Nationalist
China was taken.
Prof. Chapman said that the
program will have far reaching
consequences. The knowledge
gained will help improve weather
forcasting, radio -communication,
ocean currents and "its effect on
climatic conditions and fisheries,
and other related phenomena.
Although the IGY is officially
completed with the end of this
year, Prof. Chapman said that
continued discussions to study and
interpret the results of the in-
formation gathered are planned
during the next three or four
years. Complete processing and
study of data in some fields may,
however, take about twenty-five
years.
Most outstanding characteristic
of the program, Prof. Chapman
said, lies in the fact that participa-
tion of each country was entirely
on a voluntary and cooperative
basis. It was all like one family.
Finally, Prof. Chapman added,
the program has helped improve
international relations and broad-
en understanding between nations
-one more aspect of the immense
benefits made available to man-
kind from what has been called by
scientists "the greatest assault in
the history of mankind on the
secrets of the earth, the atmos-
phere, and the sun."
