According to a recent study the earth's orbit affects the stability of Antarctica's Eastern ice cap
Description: An international research team has found that there is a direct relation between the changes in the earth's orbit and the stability of the Eastern ice cap of Antarctica, more specifically, on the continental fringe of Wilkes Land (East Antarctica). The study is based upon the analysis of seabed sediments which were transported by icebergs around 2,2-4,3 million years ago, and which have been collected during an expedition of the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program.
