Yes

A brief description of how weather data or sensors are used:

One of UC San Diego’s ongoing initiatives includes irrigation control using campus central weather station data such as temperature and relative humidity to help control watering. Also, parts of the irrigation system are connected to the UC San Diego “Decision Making using Real-time Observations for Environmental Sustainability” (DEMROES) system for improved control based on campus microclimate data and soil moisture information.
