NSF Perspectives
Presentation at the US THORPEX-Legacy Planning Meeting June 5-6 2014
1
Key points
• US science community needs to organize. What are
your priorities? What are your best science plans?
• Hazards SEES and PREEVENTS are possible “homes” for
your proposals
• We support the goals of NOAA’s WRN
• Support community models and data assimilation
• Opportunity within AGS: VSO
• Exploring concept of and requirements for a universitybased, real-time ensemble forecast system
• AGS Goals and Objectives

PREEVENTS
(Prediction and Resilience against Extreme EVENTS)
• In many respects, extreme events is at the
heart of what GEO supports (e.g.,
earthquakes, volcanoes, tornadoes, floods,
abrupt climate change, permafrost thawing,
drought, land slides, tsunami, etc.).
• Possible partners – other agencies, and other
NSF Directorates
• Currently supporting SEES Hazard. PREEVENTS
will be the follow on program

AGS Goals and Objectives
•
Goal 1: OBSERVE, UNDERSTAND, AND MODEL EXTREME EVENTS AND NATURAL
HAZARDS
•
Goal 2: ADVANCE THE STATE OF KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING OF EARTH’S
CLIMATE
•
Goal 3: EXPAND KNOWLEDGE OF EARTH’S ATMOSPHERIC COMPOSITION AND
BEHAVIOR
•
Goal 4: UNDERSTAND THE SUN and GEOSPACE ENVIRONMENT AS A COUPLED
SYSTEM
•
Goal 5: PROVIDE RESEARCH INFRASTRUCTURE TO ADVANCE THE AGS COMMUNITY
•
Goal 6: BUILD A DIVERSE SCIENTIFIC WORKFORCE
