TitleReferee's report by James Challis, on a paper 'On the mean temperature of the observatory at Highfield House, near Nottingham, from the year 1810 to 1850' by Edward Joseph Lowe
Date27 October 1851
DescriptionRecommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. Suggests difficulties with the gaps in the data. The paper has value in conection with a similar paper by James Glaisher [Transactions of the Royal Society, 1849, part 2], which the author seems to have taken inspiration from. Suggests a comparison of the results obtained by the two papers. Suggests improvements to punctuation, style, repetition and references to the paper by James Glaisher.
