Submission + - North magnetic pole racing toward Siberia (scientificamerican.com)

RogerRoast writes: The north magnetic pole (NMP) drifts from year to year. The NMP, also known as the dip pole, is the point on Earth where the planet's magnetic field points straight down into the ground. Scottish explorer James Clark Ross first located the NMP in 1831 on the Boothia Peninsula in what is now northern Canada, and with the planting of a flag claimed it for Great Britain.
