Testing the hypothesis of orbital (eccentricity) influence on Earth's magnetic field

Abstract
We test a recent suggestion that orbital eccentricity has influenced the geomagnetic field by performing a range of spectral analyses, including estimation of statistical confidence limits, on a 2.2-million-year paleomagnetic inclination record from the western Caroline Basin (WCB). Our analyses indicate that the claimed similar to 100-kyr signal, while present over discrete portions of the WCB paleomagnetic record, is not statistically significant for the entire record and is not modulated by the 404-kyr eccentricity component as would be expected if the signal was influenced by orbital eccentricity. This signal also has highly variable phase compared to orbital eccentricity variations and the paleomagnetic record shows no statistically significant coherency with the orbital signal. Our results from a nearby coeval western Philippine Sea record support the present analysis. Together, these data suggest that the hypothesis of orbital energization of the geomagnetic field has yet to be convincingly demonstrated.
