Dear Colleagues,
We would like to bring to your attention a new NSF/GEO funding opportunity: 
Dear Colleague Letter: Prediction of and Resilience against Extreme EVENTS (PREEVENTS) <http://links.govdelivery.com/track?type=click&enid=ZWFzPTEmbWFpbGluZ2lkPTIwMTUwOTEwLjQ4OTQ5ODAxJm1lc3NhZ2VpZD1NREItUFJELUJVTC0yMDE1MDkxMC40ODk0OTgwMSZkYXRhYmFzZWlkPTEwMDEmc2VyaWFsPTE3MDM3NjA3JmVtYWlsaWQ9YXNjaG1vbHRAbnNmLmdvdiZ1c2VyaWQ9YXNjaG1vbHRAbnNmLmdvdiZmbD0mZXh0cmE9TXVsdGl2YXJpYXRlSWQ9JiYm&&&100&&&http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2015/nsf15117/nsf15117.jsp?WT.mc_id=USNSF_25&WT.mc_ev=click>
PREEVENTS is one of the successors to the Hazards SEES program, and one element of the FY16 Risk and Resilience activity at NSF. PREEVENTS is designed to (1) enhance understanding of the fundamental processes underlying natural hazards and extreme events on various spatial and temporal scales, as well as the variability inherent in such hazards and events; (2) improve models of natural hazards, extreme events, and their impacts on natural, social, and economic systems; and (3) enable development of new tools to enhance societal preparedness and resilience against such impacts. PREEVENTS will focus on natural hazards and extreme events, not those that are deliberate or accidental. PREEVENTS will include opportunities for disciplinary and multidisciplinary projects at multiple scales, particularly in areas ripe for significant near- or medium-term advances. 
Through this letter, GEO welcomes proposals for research projects and/or focused workshops that would advance the goals of PREEVENTS. Research projects may involve any PREEVENTS-relevant scientific area supported by existing GEO programs. GEO envisions PREEVENTS workshops as fostering community development in disciplinary and/or cross-disciplinary areas that are not yet well established. PREEVENTS proposals may be submitted to any appropriate existing GEO program(s), subject to the limitations for the particular program(s).
