Andreas Nilssons Docent Lecture:”Is Earth’s magnetic field about to reverse?”

Ever since the physicist Carl Friedrich Gauss first measured the strength of Earth’s magnetic field in the 1830s, it has been dropping (in total by about 10%). This has led to speculations that we are heading towards a polarity reversal, i.e. when the north and south magnetic poles switch place. How long time would such a polarity transition take and what would it mean for life on Earth?
