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).
It's unclear why only 6 glaciers were selected in N and S, and what selection criteria were used to choose them. In the provided URL, only 4 weather stations were selected in the S. The selection of stations in the N was not given.
Are the conclusions of the report quantitatively supported by the data?
Without any trend lines shown for the time periods discussed, it's unclear that the data actually support the conclusions. While the temp data for the N clearly fluctuates more than in The S (for the selected stations), further analysis of the longer term trends would be needed to properly compare N and S. With the data charted here, the temp differences could just be due to natural variability. e.g. both show +1 deg C for current times.
Are the data stations well quality-controlled?
The glacier and station selection criteria were not explained, nor were the quality control criteria.
