So. What do you think that paper says? Any comments?
It's not like it hasn't been discussed a bit.

Any pole shift would not be instantaneous - it would take years to occur fully. The magnetic field is supported by currents of molten magma deep in the earth, and the change of direction necessary to affect those field changes would be very gradual. Yes, you would see the center move and traditionally weak field areas migrate, but it would be a slow, multi-year process.

According to the British Geological Survey the South Atlantic Anomaly....the area of the earth where the magnetic field is weakest, is spreading westward, and this may be a sign that a magnetic reversal is forthcoming.
The South Atlantic Anomaly (SAA) is known to be growing in extent and spreading westwards from South Africa, as the Earth’s internal magnetic field rapidly weakens in this region. This may be early evidence of a forthcoming reversal in the direction of the Earth’s internal magnetic field.
You know, the rumour is March 15 is the day....just sayin' is all.

If the above were to occur what exactly would that mean?

Interesting that you should mention planes,.
My Neighbor is a pilot for commercial airlines,.
I had recently asked him what would happen is GPS is lost,.
And to keep it simple,. he said no worries,.
Each plane has a number of redundancies built in and their own abilities
to navigate a plane without magnetic north.
