Antevs (Automated Numerical Time-series Evaluation of Varying Sequences) was developed for the correlation of proglacial varve sequences (Rayburn and Vollmer, 2013) and is designed to work with time-series measured at annual intervals. Antevs includes standard techniques to match time-series and to deal with missing data. http://www.frederickvollmer.com/antevs/
