westward drift
Webb Traverse's wanderings are referred to as "this westward drift". The phrase is probably not accidental: in scientific circles "westward drift" is used for either of two geophysical phenomena: the gradual westward [movement of the magnetic north pole] and the westward [rotation of the outer layers of the Earth] (the lithosphere) relative to the inner layers.
