Both signals have been tested with a Gaussian curve-fit to rule out terrestrial interference.
To Loehle: A curve-fit is not a model, and the existing carbon-cycle models are not curve fits.
He said right there that it was simply a curve-fit to the model.
All Newton achieved in Book 2 with resistance forces was merely a curve-fit.
These idealizations are especially well suited for this purpose precisely because, according to the theory, they would hold exactly were no other forces at work, and hence every deviation from them should be physically telling, and not just, for example, an accidental feature of a curve-fit.
And while I’m sure you’d never curve-fit on purpose, assumptions about reality that we carry with us make it difficult not to make decisions as to procedure that have unrealized consequences.
