Evaluating alternatives to the Milankovitch theory
Description: The Milankovitch theory postulates that Earth's orbital cycles contribute to similar periodicity in climatic variation - with the periods of the climatic cycles primarily ranging from 19,000 years to 1,200,000 years. Even while support for the Milankovitch Theory remains strong, opposition to the process of tuning sedimentary records to Milankovitch models has become increasingly vocal. Here, the article's authors discuss another negative aspect of orbital tuning that has been ignored to this point. [Source: Journal of Statistical Planning and Inference]
