This new, distinctive site is located at the former quarry on the slopes of Mount Avital.
The Volcanic Park in the Golan is a paleomagnetic site, where basalt rocks have preserved the Earth’s magnetic field changes over time.
The direction of the earth’s magnetic fields changes over time. The magnetic fields are preserved in some rocks, such as the basalt rock from the Golan volcanoes.
In the Volcanic Park in the Golan, you can find stones with a different magnetic field than generally found in this time.
Explanations of this phenomenon are present at the site. In addition, you can move a compass over the rocks in the park to see how the magnetic field swings, and the compass points to the north in some places and to the south in other places.
