Earth’s north magnetic pole has been “skittering” away from Canada towards Siberia
The Earth’s magnetic pole is moving at about 50 km (30 miles) a year.
Scientists were set to release a new World Magnetic Model after accelerating changes in earth's magnetic field, but the US government shutdown has stopped them for now. Navigation as we know it could be in jeopardy.
Rapid shifts in the Earth's north magnetic pole are forcing researchers to make an unprecedented early update to a model that helps navigation by ships, planes and submarines in the Arctic, scientists said.
The magnetic North Pole is moving so quickly that scientists are having to urgently update maps used for navigation systems, a report in science journal Nature said.
