This is lecture 8 in the series "Introduction to the Mathematics of Climate" offered at the University of Minnesota in 2014 with the support of MCRN and The Institute for Mathematics and its Applications.
It continues the survey of recent developments in modeling glacial cycles, including Huybers' model and the Abe-Ouchi ice sheet model. It presents four outstanding questions about glacial cycles, and then begins a detailed discussion of how isotopes are used as climate proxies.
