Experimenting with Ice-Age Cycles in a Spreadsheet
W.H. Berger 1997 Journal of Geoscience Education v45 p428-439
This exercise has students create a global sea level model by plotting boundary conditions such as ice buildup rate and insolation into a spreadsheet and calculating ice melt rate, eventually including a term for isostatic rebound. Studying changes in insolation and sea level over the past several hundred thousands of years will enable them to explain the ice age cycles of the Quaternary.
