North Pole Moving Rapidly.

The Express
The North Pole is moving away from Canada RAPIDLY – and scientists are baffled

Image

It would seem that it is approaching the geographic pole area. Perhaps the the Earth's rotation is bringing it into line? :scratch:

You should edit the title. And no they are not "baffled". You don't really need to quote the tabloid headline :roll:

Bit better source for the science section and what they do know about it.

Core questions
In the meantime, scientists are working to understand why the magnetic field is changing so dramatically. Geomagnetic pulses, like the one that happened in 2016, might be traced back to ‘hydromagnetic’ waves arising from deep in the core1. And the fast motion of the north magnetic pole could be linked to a high-speed jet of liquid iron beneath Canada2.

The jet seems to be smearing out and weakening the magnetic field beneath Canada, Phil Livermore, a geomagnetist at the University of Leeds, UK, said at the American Geophysical Union meeting. And that means that Canada is essentially losing a magnetic tug-of-war with Siberia.

“The location of the north magnetic pole appears to be governed by two large-scale patches of magnetic field, one beneath Canada and one beneath Siberia,” Livermore says. “The Siberian patch is winning the competition.”

Which means that the world’s geomagnetists will have a lot to keep them busy for the foreseeable future.

It is however interesting. :thumbup:

...and sooner or later the poles will flip, as they have done hundreds of times before.

Are they also "STUNNED!"? Is this something scientists don't want us to know?

Obviously Trump's fault. He colluding with Putin to steal the North Pole!

Forgotten in all this is the under-represented status of the South Pole. This reliance on north-pole-centric culture is oppressive and exclusionary. There are unseen opportunities for tech-savvy culture warriors to develop compasses that point south, and it's time to stick it to Putin, magnetically.

A more accurate representation. Makes sense, the heavier bits are at the bottom.
