Daily pc3-indices are the daily sum of 20 minute pc3-indices for that station and have been shown to be well correlated with rejection of high resolution aeromagnetic survey flight-line data. NOTE: Indices may have been generated from data obtained in cooperation with the following organisations: Geoscience Australia, University of Newcastle Space Physics Group, Australian Government Antarctic Division and International Center for Space Weather Science and Education, Japan.

Geomagnetic Forecast

(last updated 18 Sep 2018 23:43 UT)

Date Ap Conditions 19 Sep 7 Quiet 20 Sep 6 Quiet 21 Sep 5 Quiet COMMENT: Quiet to Unsettled geomagnetic conditions observed over the Australian region for 18Sep with occasional Active periods for Antarctic regions in the first half of the UT day. Mostly Quiet conditions expected for the next 3 days due to the declining influence of recurrent coronal hole effects on the solar wind.
