The north magnetic pole left Canada for Siberia. This ‘lump’ may be the reason why.| Instant News


The north magnetic pole is moving away from its traditional home in the Canadian Arctic and headed for Siberia because of a fierce battle of battle carried out by two giant clumps hiding deep underground, on the core-mantle border, a new study found.

These lumps, areas of negative magnetic flow under Canada and Siberia, are in a winner-take-all struggle. Already, because this lump changes shape and magnetic intensity, a winner has appeared; from 1999 to 2019, while clots under Canada weakened, clumps under Siberia increased slightly, the researchers found. “Together, these changes cause the north magnetic pole to move towards Siberia,” the researchers wrote in the study.
