As reported by Future Fate: Scientific Evidence supporting a Pole Shift

From Richard Noone's book 5/5/2000

In December of 1985 the discovery of volcanic ash twenty feet underground in the Nile delta was found to be identical to the ash from an enormous eruption approximately 3,500 years ago on the Greek island of Santorini. This discovery proves that the effects of the eruption (22,000 times greater than the effect of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima) reached as far as Egypt and supports a theory (presented in chapters two and eight of Noone's book) linking the eruption to the seemingly miraculous events associated with the biblical Exodus of the Israelites from Egypt.

From Wire Reports: Researchers Find Evidence of Polar Waffling

Earth's magnetic poles change location slightly from decade to decade, but so slowly that navigation is unaffected, and compass-toting Boy Scout troops are not lost in the pines. But under certain circumstances the planet's magnetic field can become so deranged that it moves as much as 6 degrees per day, wobbling around for a week or so before stabilizing, scientists report in the April 20 issue of Nature.

Such drastic changes are beyond the limits of conventional geological opinion. But R.S. Coe of the University of California at Santa Cruz and colleagues from the University of Montpelierin France contend they took place 16.2 million years ago, during one of Earth's occasional field reversals in which magnetic north becomes south, and vice versa. No one knows why, just as no one understands exactly what produces the field in the first place. But the reversals are permanently documented in the rock record from volcanic activity.

Ten years ago, after examining lava flows at Steens Mountain, Ore., researchers found evidence the field had shifted as much as 3 degrees per day. That was an unthinkably large amount for most experts, who dismissed the findings. Undeterred, two members of the team set out to study another flow a mile away, which is the subject of the new report. Not only did they discern a field change twice as large, but they "make a convincing case" that their original results were not an artifact, writes University of Washington geologist Ronald T. Merrill in a companion article.
