### What do bands of rock on the seafloor showing alternating magnetic orientation indicate about the earths magnetic field?

They indicate that the Earth's magnetic field has undergone shifting of the positions of it's poles several times in the past.

Earths magnetic orientation is locked into the rock when the rock cools

### How can the magnetic orientation of rocks be used to trace the way a continent moved as it drifted?

&bull;The magnetic orientation of rocks of different ages can be compared to get an idea of how the position of a continent has changed over time. This is the exact answer out of the book.

### What are the earth polar shifts?

A geomagnetic reversal is a change in the orientation of Earth's magnetic field such that the positions of magnetic north and magnetic south become interchanged. These events often involve an extended decline in field strength followed by a rapid recovery after the new orientation has been established. These events occur on a scale of tens of thousands of years or longer.more info herehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geomagnetic_reversal
