Abstract: Scientists studying western North Atlantic Ocean deep‐sea sediments have discovered that the Earth's magnetic field underwent 14 local excursions since the last global magnetic‐field polarity reversal 780,000 years ago. These excursions coincide with similar excursions identified elsewhere on the planet—leading to the conclusion that excursions are global in nature, occur a significant portion of the time, and are an integral part of geomagnetic field secular variation between reversals. Excursions are define…
