What is happening in the world with the deviation of the magnetic pole of the earth towards Siberia?
There is a phenomenon called magnetic declination which would be having this important Russian region as its center. Do you know what its consequences would be for humanity?
Here we inform you about it.
Why does the displacement of the magnetic pole cause so much alarm?
In the 2012, it was predicted that communication systems would be out of control because the magnetic poles
they were changing positions and worse yet, that this would cause World's End due to the melting of
the polar ice caps, can you imagine?
Then, at the beginning of the 2018, the scientific agency of geology NOAA and the British Geological Survey checked
that indeed the magnetic north pole was moving too much due to variations in
terrestrial magnetic field.
However, scientists warn that the magnetic declination continues to occur and the poles
Magnets would simply be changing places, where?
Well, nothing more and nothing less than Siberia.
So you have an idea of how this displacement of the magnetic pole is taking place, it is enough to know
that in 1831 the explorer James Clark Ross located it for the first time in the Arctic belonging to Canada, but
Since then he has had an irregular displacement towards Russian territory.
In other words, in a matter of a few years what is today the North Pole will no longer be like this and in the middle of the steppe
Siberian we will have a new pole
What does this really mean from the deviation of the magnetic pole?
In the first place, it should be understood that in the polar zones of the earth there are three types of poles:
- The geographic pole: It is the one we know from geography classes at school. It is enough to remember that they have
said that there are two, one at each end of the earth, the north pole and the south pole. In these areas it is stored
large amount of fresh water, and the freezing of these waters produces the terrestrial physical balance.
- The magnetic pole: It is a position that varies with the years and where the surrounding magnetic forces operate
the earth. The manifestation of these forces produces balance but at a spatial level.
- The geomagnetic pole: It is an area of the earth where a giant magnet is located. This area is
denominates magnetosphere, where the magnetic forces are stronger in the pole and weaker in the equator.
Therefore, at opposite ends of the earth we have three poles, the geographical, the magnetic and the
geomagnetic, not being coincidental because there has been a deviation of the pole for years
magnetic, that is, the magnetic forces of the earth are moving.
Where are the magnetic forces of the earth moving?
According to several expert scientists of the geological area, the model of magnetic declination that governs the
world is changing, and with it the interpretation of data in the compass, the navigation system through
the seas and oceans, the orientation of the GPS and the location of the Smartphone.
This modification of the magnetic north pole would be leading to a displacement of the magnetic pole
terrestrial, with a distance from Canadian territory to the Siberian region. This due to movement
of the liquid iron core inside the earth's crust.
To understand this phenomenon you have to imagine a balloon partially filled with water. Have you ever had
Any in your hands?
Have you not felt how the weight of the balloon moves towards where the water is?
That is, the balloon will always go in the direction that the water moves. That's the same thing is happening with
But there is something else, in the case of the example of the balloon with water, apart from moving according to the mass of the liquid not
More nothing happens. While something different happens with the earth: as it is molten iron what is below
the earth's crust, that is, a metal, due to the energy of the earth's magnetic field this mass becomes
in a giant magnet.
What and how does the phenomenon of unpredictable variation of the Earth's magnetic declination affect?
The forces produced by this gigantic magnet are recorded and incorporated into navigation maps that are
used by interoceanic ships to move in a certain direction.
The readings of the magnetic pole are used for the construction of GPS positioners such as maps
Now, you imagine what would happen if the data were not recorded in the variation of the magnetic pole for
update the navigation systems, simply the large inter-oceanic vessels would navigate
While the Google maps simply would not guide anyone, because the north they would be using
I would have stopped being one at some time.
Seen this way, if these GPS satellite positioners will not be updated due to the change in the declination of the
terrestrial magnetic force when your GPS is marking an address would not be the desired point, but
from a point where said address was before the variation.
Why not study the magnetic pole declination and build a predictive program?
Until recently these changes in the magnetic declination were slight and if they were not taken into consideration in
the practice did not happen, but now it happens that the north magnetic pole is moving with so much
speed that warrants a more constant update.
If these movements in the deviation of the magnetic pole followed a pattern there would be no problem because
simply update the navigation maps. But no, the fact is that the position
where the magnetic pole is located suffers an unpredictable displacement.
So far we only know that this magnetic polar deviation increases its speed every year, going of 15
kilometers per year to 55 Km / year in less than a decade, this being a phenomenon that not only fascinates
that also worries.
It is also known that, even though the direction is not completely linear, the deviation of the magnetic pole
It has a defined course: you want to position yourself in Siberia, the enigmatic region of Mother Russia.
