Are The Earth's Magnetic Poles About To Flip?

Scientists have detected that the earth's magnetic field has been significantly weakening over the past six months. Data collated by the European Space Agency (ESA) Swarm satellite array indicates that the field has developed several weak areas over the Western Hemisphere.
Conversely, the field has strengthened in other areas such as the...

Earth's Magnetic Field Moving Fast

Are we in the midst of a pole shift? Scientists are divided about this, but earth's magnetic field has begun shifting much more rapidly than expected. Earth's magnetic pole flips approximately every 500,000 years, and it has not shifted for 780,000 years, meaning that it's overdue. has previously reported the opinion of some...

Poles Will Flip Near Equator First

Earth's poles are reversing, a process that takes about 7,000 years to complete. However, researchers say the flip will happen much more quickly near the equator, causing havoc to measuring devices that rely on the magnetic poles.

Our Moving Magnetic Field

The Earth's magnetic field moves around. Right now, the north magnetic pole is in Canada, near Resort Bay (population 300), where you can buy a tee shirt saying, "Resolute Bay isn't the end of the world, but you can see it from here." Soon it will leave North America and head for Siberia. And lately, it's started moving much faster.

Poles Ready to Flip

There are large holes in the Earth's magnetic field over the Atlantic and the Arctic, indicating that the north and south poles may be getting ready to reverse positions in a magnetic flip. This would produce a period of chaos, when compasses no longer point north, migrating animals head in the wrong direction and satellites are burned up by...
