Scientists are puzzled when they found out that the Earth’s Magnetic North Pole is moving towards Russia. The Magnetic poles that serve as the foundation of our navigations are moving.
The north magnetic pole is slowly moving towards the Canadian Arctic toward Russia since 1831. But in recent years the movement rate of around 34 miles per year forced scientists to update the World Magnetic Model. This is used by civilian navigation systems the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and US and British militaries.

Scientists puzzled by the moving of the pole
The World Magnetic Model 2020 forecasts that north pole will continue to move towards Russia. Now the speed decreased to about 24.8 miles per year. Moreover, the pole traveled 1,400 miles since its discovery in 1831.
In the latest study, researchers discovered that the last reversal took 22,000 years to complete. The researchers said that this is much longer than anticipated.
Brad Singer, study author and University of Wisconsin-Madison geologist said.
Reversals are generated in the deepest parts of the Earth’s interior, but the effects manifest themselves all the way through the Earth and especially at the Earth’s surface and in the atmosphere.
Unless you have a complete, accurate and high-resolution record of what a field reversal really is like at the surface of the Earth, it’s difficult to even discuss what the mechanics of generating a reversal are.
