      Positive and Negative Magnetic Declination or Variation A diagram in the map margin will show the difference (declination) at the centre of the map between magnetic north and true north. Where magnetic north is west of true north, the compass needle is deflected to the left. At most places on the Earth's surface, the compass doesn't point exactly toward geographic north. The deviation of the compass from true north is an angle called "declination" (or "magnetic declination"). It is a quantity that has been a nuisance to navigators for centuries, especially since it varies with both geographic location and time. It might surprise you to know that.

        A magnetic compass with magnetic declination correction for best accuracy. A compass is an instrument used for navigation and orientation that shows direction relative to the geographic North. Geographic North is computed given the magnetic North and the magnetic declination at your current location. In some places around the world, the magnetic North can be as /5(K). The difference between true north and magnetic north is called “declination.” When true north and magnetic north are aligned, you’re at 0˚ declination. Your compass needle will point to true north. However, if you’re east or west of 0˚ declination, your compass will not be in line with true north. The Arkansas Bowhunter Ed Course.

        Variations in Magnetic Declination 1. VARIATIONS OF MAGNETIC DECLINATION 2. Daily Variation -also known as Diurnal variation -extreme eastern position of the needle usually occurs early in the morning and the extreme western position occurs just about after noon time.   The basic design of this kind of compass has three moving parts set on a baseplate. The baseplate is the clear acrylic plate with rulers on each side and a roughly rectangular shape that forms the has a long black direction of travel arrow running down its midline. In this photo the direction of travel arrow is pointing down and to the left.

Remember, Easterly declination values are represented as positive numbers and Westerly declination values are represented as negative numbers. Now you may want to go to our next learning page, so you can learn how to use your declination value. Magnetic declination is an important concept for accurate navigation.

A compass will always point along the lines of magnetic force (which converge on what are called the magnetic poles).

The angle between the direction of force and the direction of the geographic north pole is called the declination. Magnetic declination, sometimes called magnetic variation, is the angle between magnetic north and true north.

Declination is positive east of true north and negative when west. Magnetic declination changes over time and with location. As the compass points with local magnetic fields, declination value is needed to obtain true north.

Magnetic Poles A magnet's North pole is thought as the pole that is attracted by the Earth's North Magnetic Pole when the magnet is suspended so it can turn freely. Since opposite poles attract, the North Magnetic Pole of the Earth is the south pole of its magnetic field. Earth’s Magnetic field (Credits: ) Magnetic dipole field (simple north-south field like that of a.

Using a magnetic declination chart: A magnetic declination chart is a map with the earth’s magnetic fields available on it. Using a compass: There are three types of bearing, they are true, magnetic and compass bearing. A compass can be used to calculate the declination as it is one of the errors of the compass and the other is magnetic.

The declination indicator (a red tick mark in this example) will start to rotate as you twist. Note: If your model has no separate declination scale, use the orienting arrow and the degree scale on the rotating bezel.

Stop when the declination indicator is centered over your declination value (° West in Author: REI Staff. Magnetic declination is the number of degrees and direction between true north and magnetic north. Because declination varies over time, it is advisable to get a reasonably current figure.

If your USGS map is more than 15 years old (the declination date appears in the diagram), here’s an easy-to-use website that gives you only the information. Magnetic declination is expressed in degrees east or west.

A western declination is usually stated as a negative value while an eastern declination is represented by a positive value. For example, in Florida, magnetic north currently lies around 6 degrees west of true north, so the Sunshine State has a magnetic declination of -6°.

Magnetic Declination The difference between the north geographic pole and the north magnetic pole is called magnetic declination or usually just declination.

Depending on where you are on the earth, the angle of declination will be different - from some locations, the geographic and magnetic poles are aligned so declination is minimal, but from.
