Magnetic Pole Reversal Effects - What would happen??
Question: It would appear that the earth's magnetic poles have 'swapped' many times, with N & S switching positions. If this should happen in the current era, what would be the effect? Obviously all navigational instrumentation would be affected, but what about the effect of a reversal of the magnetic field on electronic devices and electro-magnetic equipment? Would such a massive change affect national power grids? SBradley, School Dist. Technology Director steve... Read on......http://www.newton.dep.anl.gov/askasci/phy99/phy99357.htm
