Arctic Flushing and Interglacial Melt Pulses

Does the specific depth of the Arctic Ocean channels and edges correlate with the melt water pulses of ocean rise in the start of this Interglacial? Would a lunar ‘kicker’ start the melt at those sensitive ocean depths? Continue reading

Tides, Vectors, Scalars, Arctic Flushing, and Resonance

A brief look at why ignoring the direction of lunar tide forces is a bad idea, and why just looking at the size of the scalar portion is not the path to understanding. Continue reading
