NSF: Request for Information on Earth System Predictability R&D

Dear Colleagues,

We hope that you are doing well during this difficult period.

This is to alert you about the Request for Information on Earth System Predictability R&D that was just released by NASA on behalf of the National Science and Technology Council's Fast Track Action Committee for Earth System Predictability.

The request is for public input on future Earth system predictability R&D activities of Federal agencies as well as their partnerships with the external community. Requested information pertains to the practical needs that could be addressed by this Earth system predictability research effort and the socio-economic benefits that could result from it, current gaps and barriers that are holding back progress, and opportunities for key activities that could be most valuable, including transformative “big ideas,” with regard to understanding Earth system predictability. More specific information can be found therein.

The Request for Information can be accessed here: https://beta.sam.gov/opp/bbff69a73f38423e9a0328494c14dab2/view

Closing Date: May 15th 2020

Please distribute broadly to those who may be interested in the opportunity to provide input on this R&D topic.

Be safe and healthy!

Dr. Kelly K. Falkner
Director, Office of Polar programs
