i was just reading an article i got linked to from google, about the North magnetic poles location is moving towards siberia currently at about 45k per year, which has increased over the past 100 years from around 15k per year, it was explained that it was possibly caused by density variations in the liquid core of the planet, i was just curious if anyone else had a better explanation and if any research has been done into the melting arctic circle ice, and has this had any affect on the poles moving.

I may have blinked past the answers to my questions but this isnt really my area of expertise just a passing curiosity.

cheers

This has nothing to do with Artic Ice and is not to be confused with magnetic field reversal.
