On Solar Origin of Alleged Mass Extinction Periods in Records of Natural Data: Mass Extinctions Do Not Repeat

Abstract : An acclaimed dismissal of the alleged ~ 62 Ma period of mass extinctions in the Sepkoski compendium of world marine fossils has been independently confirmed and a solar origin of that and other alleged Phanerozoic periods established. Here reported are corollaries of that confirmation for fundamental questions of paleontology and overall geophysics, including the Sun-Earth interactions such as magnetic reversals and the choice of methodology for treating natural data’ sets. Due to its ability to analyze raw data directly and with remarkable accuracy and precision, Gauss-Vaniček spectral analysis is by far superior to other relevant methods of spectral analysis (notably Fourier’s) in detecting periodicity in overwhelmingly gapped time series such as all records of the Phanerozoic data. Virtually all Phanerozoic periods of mass extinctions are spurious.
