Climate at high-obliquity | John Marshall - Oceans at MIT
Alternative hypotheses, such as the “Zipper Rift” hypothesis and the high-obliquity hypothesis, have been offered as possible explanations to the scientific community of the previously observed data.

Moreover, if the majority of glacialdeposits are in low-latitudes in support of the high obliquityhypothesis it is possible that local environmental conditions such aselevated topography may have been responsible for high latitude glacialdeposits.
The High Obliquity hypothesis cannot explain Varangian high-latitudeglacial deposits because of the high amounts of incident solarradiation, which will not allow for the accumulation of snow.
