Statistical Physics of Fracture, Friction and Earthquake
by Hikaru Kawamura, et al. - arXiv
We review our research regarding the dynamics and the statistical properties of earthquakes, mainly from a statistical physical viewpoint. Emphasis is put both on the physics of friction and fracture, and on the statistical physical modelling.

Why could ice ages be unpredictable?
by Michel Crucifix - arXiv
It is commonly accepted that the variations of Earth's orbit and obliquity control the timing of Pleistocene glacial-interglacial cycles. Evidence comes from analysis of palaeoclimate records. However, we do not know how tight this control is.
