Researchers say the magnetic North Pole is ‘skittering’ away from Canada, towards Siberia.
Scientists warn Earth’s magnetic North Pole has begun moving ‘erratically’ at speeds so fast they are having to issue an emergency update to maps used by electronic navigation systems
- Magnetic North Pole is ‘skittering’ away from Canada, towards Siberia
- Researchers say it is moving at an ‘unusually high speed of about 50 km per year’
- Say Canada is essentially losing a magnetic tug-of-war with Siberia
- Researchers around the world are scrambling to update global models relied on by GPS navigation systems
