> 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.
> 
> Deadlines:  
> Preliminary Proposals: October 1, 2010
> Full (Invited) Proposals:  March 15, 2011
