Actually the magnetic poles drift at an average of 10k per yr.
Lately this drift has sped-up to 40k per yr.
A magnetic field reversal or pole flip has not happened for over 750,000 yrs and is overdue, when this happens the field drops to near zero before
But this is not what The Path of the Pole is about (bad choice of title perhaps).
Hapgoods theory is that the crust itself moved over the mantle, hence the flood and the demise of Atlantis.
Now lets say this happened during a period of low field intensity, would that register in rocks which incidentally only get magnetized when in a lava
