Geomagnetic North Pole

The Geomagnetic North Pole is the pole of the Earth's geomagnetic field closest to true north. For other places known as the North Pole, see North Pole.

Like the Magnetic North Pole, is it a south magnetic pole, because it attracts the north pole of a bar magnet. It is the centre of the region in the magnetosphere in which the Aurora Borealis can be seen. Its present location is 78°30' North, 69° West, near Thule in Greenland.

The first voyage to this pole was by David Hempleman-Adams in 1992.
