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 16 Jul 2018 23:30 UT)

Date Ap Conditions 17 Jul 7 Quiet to Unsettled 18 Jul 6 Quiet 19 Jul 8 Quiet to Unsettled COMMENT: Geomagnetic activity was at quiet to unsettled levels across the Australian region today (UT day 16 July). Mostly quiet to unsettled levels of geomagnetic activity are expected for the next three UT days (17-19 July). Later on UT day 19 July geomagnetic activity can increase due to effects related to a recurrent coronal hole which was facing the Earth on 16 July.
