The Magnetic North Pole is moving from Canada to Siberia. Experts explain the reasons behind the “walk”


The Magnetic North Pole is moving further and further away from its “traditional home” in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago and heading for Siberia due to “fierce competition” between two massive magnetic “bubbles” hiding deep underground at the core and “mantle”. Earth, “a new study suggests.

“I’ve never seen anything like it before,” said one of the study’s authors, Dr. Phil Livermore, a professor of geophysics at the University of Leeds. Live Science.

When researchers first located the North Magnetic Pole (the point of the compass needle) in 1831, it was located in northern Canada called Nunavut. Later, researchers realized that the Magnetic North Pole tended to “walk”, but did not usually move far away. Then, from 1990 to 2005, the speed at which it moved from 15 kilometers per year to 60 kilometers per year, the scientists wrote in the new study.

This rapid movement has required more frequent updates to navigation systems, including those that operate mapping features for today’s smartphones.

The team of researchers at the University of Leeds reports that this behavior is the result of competition between two magnetic “bubbles” at the Earth’s outer liquid core.

In addition, changes in the circulation of molten material inside our planet have altered the strength of the negative magnetic flux of the regions above.

“This change in the pattern of traffic has weakened the region under Canada and greatly intensified the power under Siberia,” Livermore said.

“That’s why the North Pole has left its historic position above the Canadian Arctic Archipelago and crossed the International Date Line. Thus, we can say that Northern Russia is currently winning the fight “, the professor added.
