Abstract: The problem of forecasting the location of the magnetic north pole is discussed. Based on recent evidence, last movements appear to be not completely explainable by the consolidated knowledge on the subject. Then, it could be desirable to make predictions under very mild assumptions. To this end, we propose a nonparametric approach based on sphere-sphere regression by providing some promising experimental evidence.
