A comparison of competing explanations for the 100,000-yr ice age cycle

Abstract:

There currently exists no consensus as to the cause of the ice ages of the late Pleistocene. Many of the competing hypotheses have been formulated into mathematical models which enables a rigorous comparison to be made. Spectral analysis fails to distinguish rival models. Using regression analysis, we examine the relative performance of several models, each representative of a different type of modeling approach, as explanations of both the global ice volume and also the time rate of change o...
