Earth's Magnetic North Pole Is Moving Faster Than Ever, Leaving Scientists Baffled

Earth’s magnetic north pole is moving at unprecedented speeds and scientists are still unsure of why this is the case.

What makes these recent changes so interesting is the sheer speed at which they are occurring.

Some fear that the rapid movement of the magnetic north pole could cause problems for Global Positioning Systems (GPS), military operations, airliners, and other navigation systems that rely on pinpointing where precisely the pole is located.

Migratory animals such as birds, butterflies, and whales also use the magnetic field for directions.

The latest report from NOAA, the “World Magnetic Model” for 2020, shows the pole rapidly speeding in the direction of Siberia. However, the trajectory of the pole will likely change.
