First, there are a number of things to consider. The movement of the North Pole can be indicative of many things. The first, and most obvious to any
astronomer is the Chandler wobble. Feel free to use Google to test my claims. This wobble shows as the movement of the north pole (not the magnetic
one) and from what I remember reading, is influenced by seafloor topology. The effects are noted briefly in this
and if I can find a better link, I will post it.
The movement of the magnetic north pole is slightly different and is based on the rotation of the earth's core - which is fluid, much like a liquid
magnet. Science Daily
recognizes that the pole is moving, and this movement
For those of you who trust NASA, there are a few links explaining the cause, effect and history of magnetic pole reversals on Earth as well as how
they are detected and in fact predict when the next one will occur.
Magnetic Reversals and Moving Continents
Of course, a fluid spinning magnet could easily be influenced by external influences such as the sun and the magnetosphere. We recognize that the sun
is in a state of change that occurs once every 11 years and that it is
currently in process of flipping its magnetic poles.
Now, as to how to detect such a thing - the first thing to note would be bird migratory patterns changing.
Pigeons would be a good
I am sure that over time we will find this capability in more than just pigeons.
An increase in earthquakes and tsunamis generated from such at the seafloor would also be something to watch.
I'll add more when it comes to mind, but... One note on Plate slippage: please see this
Me, I am staying in a place at a height of 3500 feet above sea level.
