Florida: Scientists say the earth's magnetic north pole is slowly
Russia. One place recently affected by the shift
is Tampa International Airport.
"You want to be absolutely precise in your compass
heading," Takemoto said. "To make sure the precision is
there that we need, you have to make these changes."
It's not known yet if similar changes will be needed at other U.S. airports. It is estimated that the pole is shifting at about 40 miles per year.
