Magnetic North Pole

Battling polar storms with temperatures down to minus 60 deg centigrade and dodging hunting polar bears, the team skied for over three weeks across the frozen Arctic Ocean to reach the 1996 Magnetic North Pole. This remarkable location marks the point of confluence of the Earth’s magnetic field out on the pack ice of the Arctic Ocean.
