Book cover: Why could ice ages be unpredictable?Why could ice ages be unpredictable?
by - 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.
