Much of our information on climatic evolution during the past million years comes from the time series describing the isotope record of deep-sea cores. A major task of climatology is to identify, from this apparently limited amount of information, the essential features of climate viewed as a dynamic system. Using the theory of nonlinear dynamic systems we show how certain key properties of climate can be determined solely from time series data.
