Scientists have a hard time understanding why the Earth’s magnetic Arctic is rapidly migrating to Siberia. Magnetic Arctic movement is not uncommon. To the bewilderment of scientists, the magnetic Arctic is moving faster towards Siberia.
Scientists say the magnetic Arctic will never really stand still because of the flow and fluctuation of the core of the earth’s iron and water. The magnetic Arctic was officially discovered in 1831 and has moved about 1,400 miles since then. Typically, movement is slow and scientists can easily track location. In recent decades, the speed of the movement has accelerated to about 34 miles per year. Recent data show that the speed of the movement has slowed to about 25 miles per year. This is a phenomenon that scientists have never seen before.
Systems such as GPS and Compass applications are updated every five years to maintain service accuracy. This means that magnetic Arctic movement does not affect accuracy or cause any problems with the system. The last update to the world’s magnetic model was last week. Due to the speed of the magnetic North Pole, the update was a year ahead of schedule. The accuracy of the updated data can continue until 2025.
