Earth’s Magnetic Poles Likely Won’t Flip After All, Scientists Predict

The protective shell of our planet is no longer quite what it used to be. Over the past two centuries, its magnetic force has been dropping, and no one knows why. Meanwhile, a worrying weak spot in the field called the South Atlantic Anomaly blistered above the Atlantic Oceanand has already proven problematic for the …

Swarm Reveals Magnetic Waves Across Earth’s Outer Core

Discovery of a whole new type of magnetic wave sweeping through the Earth’s outer core

Using information from ESA’s Swarm satellite mission, scientists have discovered an entirely new type of magnetic wave that sweeps across the outermost part of the Earth’s outer core every seven years. This fascinating discovery opens a new window on a world that we will never be able to see. This mysterious wave oscillates every seven …
