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 Aug 2017 23:50 UT)

Date Ap Conditions 19 Aug 16 Active 20 Aug 13 Unsettled to Active 21 Aug 11 Unsettled COMMENT: Quiet to Unsettled geomagnetic activity with isolated Active periods observed across the Australian region over the past 24 hours. Geomagnetic activity is expected to be Unsettled to Active for 19Aug-20Aug due to continued coronal hole effects. A decline in geomagnetic activity is expected on 21Aug to Unsettled to Quiet conditions due to diminishing influence of the coronal hole.
