And during the hundreds of years or so a reversal would take, the planet would lose some of its magnetic shielding to ultraviolet radiation, said Neil Opdyke, professor of geology at the University of Florida.
The magnetic field is not necessarily heading to a polarity reversal, Opdyke said -- at times in the past it lost intensity, only to rebound.And if the planet were on the path to a polarity reversal, it would come in 500 to 1,000 years, he said.
The reasons why magnetic polarity reverses remain unclear, Opdyke said.
