Magnetic Declination is the angle between ______

Magnetic Declination is the angle between magnetic north and true north.

Magnetic Declination

  • The parameters describing the magnetic field’s direction are declination (D) and inclination (I).
  • Declination is positive east of true north and negative when west.
  • Magnetic declination changes over time and with the location.
  • The magnetic declination in a given area will change slowly over time
  • If the compass at your place is pointing clockwise concerning the True North, declination is positive or EAST
  • If the compass at your place is pointing counter-clockwise concerning the True North, declination is negative or WEST
