The Earth’s magnetic field, generated by turbulent convection in the liquid outer core, has reversed many times over its 3.5 billion-year history, at a present rate of about 2-3 times per million years (Stern, 2002) The last global reversal took place 780,000 years ago, leading to speculation that we are “overdue”.
