Abstract The stability of orbits in the transneptunian region is numerically computed. It is found that, in analogy to the asteroid belt, there exist many chaotic layers associated with thin mean-motion resonances. These are either moderate- and high-order resonances with Neptune or three-body resonances with Neptune and Uranus. The orbital eccentricity chaotically increases at the thin resonances, allowing some Kuiper Belt objects to be slowly transferred to Neptune-crossing orbits. The… Expand
