the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center
Visit this NASA site to find out about long-term changes in Earth's magnetic field, and how magnetic stripes in the Atlantic seafloor provide evidence for reversals of this field. You'll see a model of Earth's interior that helps explain how Earth's magnetic field is generated and how the reversals occur. Also, a computer-generated image shows the complicated magnetic field in-between reversals.
