The International Geophysical Year (IGY; French: Année géophysique internationale) was an international scientific project that lasted from 1 July to 31 December It marked the end of a long period during the Cold War when scientific interchange between East and West had been seriously interrupted.

Sixty-seven countries participated in IGY projects, although one notable exception. The International Geophysical Year (IGY –) was the most successful global effort to coordinate the measurement and collection of geophysical data from around the world during a period of anticipated maximum solar activity.
