Dear CIG community:
NSF has issued a new solicitation on the Frontiers of Earth System Dynamics which should be of interest to the CIG community. Robin Reichlin has asked me to forward the following information to you.
Begin forwarded message:
> From: Robin Reichlin <rreichli at nsf.gov>

> Dear Louise et al,
> I'm hoping you can circulate the following information to the CIG
> community about a new solicitation for cross-cutting research on earth
> dynamics. I think it will be of broad interest to the community.

> The NSF "Frontiers in Earth System Dynamics" (FESD) solicitation has been
> released and is available on the NSF website. The solicitation number is NSF
> 10-577, and the link and program synopsis are below.
> Synopsis: The Earth is often characterized as "dynamic" because its systems
> are variable over space and time, and they can respond rapidly to multiple
> perturbations. The goals of the Frontiers in Earth-System Dynamics (FESD)
> program are to: (1) foster an inter-disciplinary and multi-scale
> understanding of the interplay among and within the various sub-systems of
> the Earth, (2) catalyze research in areas poised for a major advance, (3)
> improve data resolution and modeling capabilities to more realistically
> simulate complex processes and forecast disruptive or threshold events, and
> (4) improve knowledge of the resilience of the Earth and its subsystems.
> Preliminary Proposals: October 1, 2010
> Full (Invited) Proposals: March 15, 2011
