Earth’s magnetic north pole is veering towards Siberia at an incredibly fast rate, and experts are not sure why. The erratic movement has forced the scientists tasked with monitoring the planet’s magnetic field to update their system that underlies global navigation, from Google Maps to shipping. As liquid iron swirls around in the Earth’s core, the magnetic field – and

Earth's magnetic field is acting up — and nobody knows why.

The shifts are forcing an unprecedented early update to a model that helps navigation.
