QUIGS paper in Nature

nature feb17Members of the PAGES-PMIP Working Group on Quaternary Interglacials (QUIGS) published their findings on how astronomical forces lead to interglacials in Nature yesterday.

"A simple rule to determine which insolation cycles lead to interglacials", written by Chronis Tzedakis et al., discusses the use of a statistical model that correctly predicts every complete deglaciation of the past million years. They propose that the appearance of larger ice sheets was a consequence of an increase in the deglaciation threshold and in the number of skipped insolation peaks.
