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).
The author used a regional dataset of importance to planning for regional and local adaptation to climate change. Some effort was made to determine stations in proximity to the ocean, however, with finer resolution tools available, this selection maybe somewhat arbitrary.
Are the conclusions of the report quantitatively supported by the data?
Yes, the author concluded temperature trends fit best when including CO2 forcings. However, the author also noted there was some discrepancy between model outputs..
Are the data stations well quality-controlled?
No mention was made of the quality of the station data. The author chose a broader dataset, rather than a filtered narrow dataset.
