January 22, 2019. TV channel "Russia1", program "Utro Rossii" showed a story about the study of the modern geomagnetic situation in our country. Acting director of Geophysical Center RAS A. A. Soloviev and other researchers of Geophysical Center RAS took part in the program.
Anatoly Alexandrovich Soloviev said that many people associate the acceleration of the North magnetic pole with the impending period of inversion, when the poles - North and South - switch places. In the history of the Earth, this has already happened several times; by geological standards, the process of changing poles is almost instantaneous — it takes only several millennia. So scientists have time to make predictions, what threatens humanity with this event.
Olga Olegovna Samokhina, Researcher at the Laboratory for Innovation Projects of GC RAS, demonstrated a multimedia projection complex with a spherical screen - one of the most important developments of GC RAS. This device allows you to see the processes and phenomena occurring on our planet in real time, and also to visualize any information necessary for research.
Recently, American scientists recorded another shift of the North magnetic pole towards Siberia. An invited expert at "Utro Rossii" – Dr. Sc. Andrei Nikolaevich Lyakhov, Head of the Electrodynamic Processes Laboratory of the Institute of Dynamics of Geospheres, RAS commented on this issue.
