High quality climate data allows us to see how climate varies in one place season to season, and over years and decades, and how common severe droughts and other events have been. Climate models depend on historical data. If the records are incomplete, our climate forecasts are likely to be less accurate.How is ENACTS addressing the data gap?We use satellite data and climate model outputs to supplement the weather station data that countries make available through their national meteorological services.
“That was by far, to date, the hardest decision that I’ve had to make in my life,” she explains. “Mentally, I was ready for my senior season and to reach the goals that we talked about and hit all of those milestones the rest of the year.

A report from the city’s Independent Budget Analyst’s Office found that, when certain priority expenses are added in, the problem could grow to more than $57 million.The turnaround in San Diego’s financial picture is primarily blamed on a change in calculations by the board of the municipal employees’ retirement system, which will raise the city’s annual contribution far above what was expected.In the current fiscal year, the city’s contribution was $191.2 million. In the next fiscal year, the payment will climb to $227.9 million, a jump of more than $36 million.The city of San Diego isn’t the only government entity facing financial problems going into the new year. Not long after approving pay raises for employees, the San Diego Unified School District is up against a projected deficit of $117 million for the next school year.Other issues likely to make news in 2017: local governments will consider regulations designed to implement voter approved state Proposition 64, which legalized the recreational use of marijuana in California; civil rights advocates plan to push city of San Diego officials to take concrete steps to address findings of a study that quantified the amount of racial profiling in police traffic stops and found that minority drivers were searched more often than whites after being pulled over; while a private committee raises funds to begin construction on a project meant to divert traffic from Balboa Park’s central plaza, a lawsuit filed by opponents will challenge the plan; the oft delayed opening of the county courthouse could take place sometime in the middle of the year; and city staff will develop regulations on the much debated topic of short term rental properties, which have proliferated in San Diego’s beach areas, sometimes creating conflicts with neighbors.A proposed ban on short term rentals in residential neighborhoods was rejected by the City Council, which ordered staff to come up with a set of rules for such properties.Public Nuisance?
