Shifting Ice Caps

Magnetic Pole and Ice Caps move in Tandem

Looking at the two satellite pictures taken back in 1979 and in 2003 for the Arctic, we find a considerable erosion of the Ice Cap. However, upon closer inspection it seems that the melting of the Ice Cap is uneven along its perimeter. In fact, when you look deeper at the area encircled in red, it is clear that the ice is building towards Siberia and is moving away from Canada. At the same time, the strength of the Earth’s magnetic shield has decreased 15% on average over the years  from 1850 to 2012. During the same period, the south magnetic pole, in the northern hemisphere, has wandered about 1,100 km (685 miles) into the Arctic Circle. “The rate of the magnetic pole’s movement has increased in the last  century compared with fairly steady movement in the previous four centuries”, said Joseph Stoner and the Oregon researchers. The Oregon team examined the sediment records from several Arctic lakes. Looking at the sediment records of the Earth’s magnetic field at the time, scientists used carbon dating to track changes in the magnetic field. They found that the magnetic pole had shifted significantly in the past thousand years. It generally migrated between northern Canada and Siberia, and has occasionally moved in other directions. The rate of shift of the magnetic pole is on the increase and it seemed that in the past decade it had moved a distance close to the distance it moved in the past century. Comparing the two phenomena, there seems to be a relation between the location of the magnetic pole and the location of ice build up; are they both moving towards Siberia in tandem? Recent increase of global warming rate seems to cause the entire ice in the North Pole to melt in the coming few years. Older ice cap will melt while at the same time new ice cap will form over new location. Melting occurs faster, as the former ice cap has now been covered by a warmer Temperature Belt, but the build up of new ice cap comes from precipitation, and accumulation of ice takes place over hundreds of years.  New ice caps take centuries to fully form.

Magnetic Pole’s Wandering in Ancient Times

Upon tracing the magnetic pole ancient movements together with documented climate conditions at ancient times, it is apparent that the closer we come to the magnetic pole, the colder it gets.  Arab ancient texts speak of an abrupt climate change in ancient times.  The manuscripts come from ancient texts that describe in detail a bitter cold wave that occurred between the years 900 AD and 950 AD in Arabia. Research has been brought to light by a team of scientists from the University of Extremadura. The article published describes, how in 900 AD, the territory where it is now Iraq and Syria suffered periods characterized by a very unusual cold, with temperature below zero..

According to Fernando Domínguez-Castro, who was carrying research at the University of Extremadura in Spain, the study has brought to light key data that better interpret the current climate change. “We were fortunate to find ancient sources of direct data that are traditionally neglected by many climate scientists” added Dominguez-Castro. Some researchers think this may presage a magnetic reversal, in which the north and south magnetic poles flip. However, this does not justify why the strength of the magnetic field is weakening. Scientists admit that there are things going on, deep beneath our feet, which they do not understand. I add to that, that there are also celestial changes going on, deep above our heads, which we need to be made aware of. Both types of changes could be inter-related and have profound consequences over life on Earth. For the major source of the thermal energy that reaches the surface of the Earth from the sky, you may click on the Earth Temperature to uncover the mysteries of the Magnetic Field in forming the Temperature Belts and causing Global Warming and Climate Change.

    Interesting article. I came across this looking for research on the ice caps and the position of the magnetic poles. I’m not sure, but I feel that the ice caps act as a superconductor holding the poles in place. Just need to find more data on this.

      Thank you for your comment. I recommend to read the page titled “Earth Temperature” on the menu of this site. It explain why Temperature Belts (regions of homogeneous climates) are centred around the nearest magnetic pole (Cold Polar belt, Continental belt, Middle Latitude belt, Dry Climate belt and Tropical belt). As the magnetic poles move, so will the Temperature Belts tag along. Where ever the magnetic poles will settle so will new formation of ice cap be formed. Along the history the magnetic poles have moved to Australia, India, Kenya, the great lakes of North America, and so on. Scientists believe that at those times Earth experienced ice ages and was totally covered by ice. My hypothesis is that the Temperature Belts were simply titled from current positioning due to the then movement of the magnetic poles. So there was no Ice Ages at least in the past 100,000 years.

      Not only the change of the magnetic poles’ locations do not only lead to “Climate Exchange” as green lands become arid and vice versa, but also to changing of Earth Spin Speed. If interested to understand what makes Earth spin and what makes it spin at different speeds, or if the spin is revered or will be reversed, you may read about my hypothesis on the “Earth Magnets” page on the menu of this site.

      Reading through the other pages an posts on this site, you may be able to put the pieces together to understand the magnitude, speed and frequency of global change. As well as the dates for the next cycle of change.
