How is this process going?

Thanks for your replies!

It is worth noting that there are four pairs of North-South poles involved.

1) The N-S poles used for or coordinate systems eg Latitude and Longitude.

2) The N-S poles at the surface ends of the mechanical spin axis.

3) The geomagnetic N and S poles at the surface surface ends of the axis of an equivalent bar magnet, centred at the Earth's centre.

4) The magnetic N and S poles at the surface where the field lines are vertical.

For most geological purposes, which is N and which is S make no difference.

But for some including the weather and the aurora there will be differences.

 

Life in general and particularly creatures however, will experience greater effects.

Many creatures use some form of magnetic navigationand I believe even some plant life has magnetic orientation.

Humans may experience some unexpected disruptions in addition.
For instance the ground of electric power grids will be partially disrupted and may result in blackouts.

Hi, "Kevin."  You started the thread.  What do you think, based on your own research on the topic and careful thought?
