Every several years, magnetic field observatories record quick changes to the position or strength of the planet's magnetic field, so-called geomagnetic jerks. The cause of these shifts has remained a mystery.

Improvements to ground-based observatories and more magnetic field measurements from satellites have given scientists new insights into the planet's magnetic behavior.
