What is your overall decision about this article?
Are the selection criteria for the stations well explained? Or, if this project does not have to do with time series met. stations, are the premises of the project well thought out and explained? Is it a topic of special interest? (It doesn't have to be, but if it is, say so).
Interesting premise. It would have been better if the locations of the glaciers had been indicated though I accept there is a limit on the word count. The data set is small (12 glaciers in total) so there is the potential for false trends. However the total available data set may be limiting.
Are the conclusions of the report quantitatively supported by the data?
Further work would be required to link the findings to the influence to Humboldt current and the “El Niño” as this is currently a reasonable explanation. The data does support the conclusion that glaciers are shrinking.
Are the data stations well quality-controlled?
