    The last ice age event, which ended ab years ago, is referred to as the "Ice Age" or the "Great Ice Age"—both usually capitalized—a time when ice covered nearly 32 percent of the land and 30 percent of the oceans. Who first proposed the idea of ice ages? Several scientists over the centuries came close to proposing the idea of ice.

Milankovitch cycles describe the collective effects of changes in the Earth's movements on its climate over thousands of years.

The term is named for Serbian geophysicist and astronomer Milutin the s, he hypothesized that variations in eccentricity, axial tilt, and precession resulted in cyclical variation in the solar radiation reaching the Earth, and that this orbital.

The astronomical theory of paleoclimates aims to explain the climatic variations occurring with quasi-periodicities lying between tens and hundreds of thousands of years. Such variations are recorded in deep-sea sediments, in ice sheets, and in continental archives. A similar theory has been developed by Michael J.

Oard, who proposes only one ice age. His explanation for the ice age is presented in The Ice Age And The Genesis Flood from ICR. A problem with this post-flood ice age theory is that it implies huge populations of Pleistocene animals survived the flood, only to become extinct afterwards during a.

Pleistocene Epoch - Pleistocene Epoch - Megafaunal extinctions: The end of the Pleistocene was marked by the extinction of many genera of large mammals, including mammoths, mastodons, ground sloths, and giant beavers. The extinction event is most distinct in North America, where 32 genera of large mammals vanished during an interval of about 2, years, centred on 11, bp.

book during Earth's history, and the most recent is thought to have begun about million years ago. Within this Pleistocene ice age, ice sheets are thought to have advanced and receded over many tens of thousands of years, growing in size during shorter ice ages called glacials and shrinking during the warmer interglacial.

Cycles of this nature were suggested in a paper by Sir John Herschel inJoseph Alphonse Adhemar in a book in (Revolutions of the Sea), and more importantly, by James Croll in (Climate and Time).

The origin of the ice age has greatly perplexed uniformitarian scientists. Much cooler summers and copious snowfall are required, but they are astronomical theory of the Pleistocene ice age. book related, since cooler air is drier. It is unlikely cooler temperatures could induce a change in atmospheric circulation that would provide the needed moisture.

As a result, well over 60 theories have been proposed. The origins of ice age theory began hundreds of years ago, when Europeans noted that glaciers in the Alps had shrunk, but its popularization is credited to. The most acceptable theory for the development of and ice age was put forward in the s by the Yugoslav Milutin Milankovitch, who used a sequence of cyclic variations in the Earth itself.

First, variations in eccentricity: the Earth's orbit changes its elliptical pattern everyyears, changing between a more circular orbit to one.

In this figure time progress from left to right. The known glacial periods in Earth's climate history are the Huronian Ice Age and the Cryogenian Ice Ages, which are Stuartian, Marinoan and Gaskiers ice ages. In Phanerozoic came first the Andean-Saharan ice age and later the Karoo ice age, the Pleistocene Ice Age is called "current".

Significant climatic changes have taken place on the Earth over a very broad range of time scales ranging from decades to billions of years [Figures (a) and (b)]. There is probably not a single cause for these changes but rather a number, which, however, are individually effective over limited.

The solution to the ice age mystery originated when the National Science Foundation organized the CLIMAP project to study changes in the earth's climate over the pastyears.

One of the goals was to produce a map of the earth during the last ice age.4/5(2). Quaternary glaciation explained. The Quaternary glaciation, also known as the Pleistocene glaciation, is an alternating series of glacial and interglacial periods during the Quaternary period that began Ma (million years ago), and is ongoing.

Although geologists describe the entire time period as an "ice age", in popular culture the term "ice age" is usually associated with just the most. It appeared that the great Pleistocene ice ages had developed slowly in cycles of aboutyears; after a number of oscillations, each ice age had come to an abrupt end.

Only if Milankovitch's shorter cycles could be related in some way to these ,year periods could his astronomical theory be accepted as an explanation of the cause. Between andhe applied a firm mathematical basis to the astronomical theory of the Pleistocene ice ages.

Oard Uniformitarian scientists believe that there were 30 or more cycles of glacial advance and retreat during the past million years of the most recent ice age.1 It is generally believed that these cycles are controlled by oscilla-tions in the orbit of the earth accord.

The Astronomical Theory of climate and the ice ages looks to the regular, predictable variations in the Earth's orbit around the Sun as the driving force for the growth and melt of the great ice sheets. Such theories have been discussed since long before there was any evidence about the.

One of the goals was to produce a map of the earth during the last ice age.4/5(1). Scientists charged with producing a map of the earth during the last ice age ultimately confirmed the theory that the earth's irregular orbital motions account for the bizarre climatic changes which bring on ice ages.

This book tells the story of those periods -- what they were like, why they occurred, and when the next ice age is due. Mike Oard has an MS degree in atmospheric science from the University of Washington.

Most of us who follow the mysteries are aware that huge numbers of carcasses of extinct megafauna, notably mammoths, have been found preserved in the permafrost of Siberia – the victims, it has been suggested, of some great cataclysm near the end of the last Ice Age.

As in the other ice age models, ice volume is a slow variable driven by the astronomical forcing. It is here coupled to a variable with a similar time scale (τ A ∼τ I) and a faster one (τ μ =τ I /3).

He also measured summer solar radiation curves in high northern latitudes, where the ice age glaciers originated, linking certain low points with four previous European Pleistocene ice ages.

The Cause of an Ice Age Still Undetermined The many astronomical theories proposed in the last century to account for the ice ages were discussed and refuted by Sir Henry Howorth in the first volume of Ice or Water.

Today the problem is still much the same as then, no nearer a solution, and a statement by Coleman in is still valid. The astronomical theory of the Pleistocene ice ages holds that variations in the earth's orbit influence climate by changing the seasonal and latitudinal dis- tribution of incoming solar radiation (1- 3).

Because these changes can be calcu- lated with great precision for the past several million years, it is possible in. Astronomical parameters recalculated by Berger show that at that time both obliquity [41ka period] and eccentricity [ka period] were low.

If these conditions were responsible for the last ice age, one would expect that similar conditions could be responsible for the preceding ice ages.

Scientists sometimes use more specific terms for an ice age depending on the length of time it lasts.
