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.

Date Ap Conditions 26 Sep 15 Unsettled to Active 27 Sep 20 Active 28 Sep 20 Active COMMENT: Quiet to active conditions were observed in the Australian region and mostly quiet to major storm levels in the Antarctic region on UT day 25 September. Global conditions are expected to be mostly unsettled with isolated active periods on 26 September and unsettled to active on 27-28 September due to coronal hole effects. There is a chance of isolated minor storm periods for all three days.
