The IGY was a successor to the two International Polar years. A special committee was established to direct and coordinate the program. The present volume assembles a group of papers covering a wide variety of topics in geophysics.

These papers were presented at a special symposium, June 28conducted by the U.S. National Committee for the International Geophysical Year just before the IGY program formally began.
