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 26 Feb 2021 23:30 UT)

Date Ap Conditions 27 Feb 9 Quiet to Unsettled 28 Feb 7 Quiet 01 Mar 15 Unsettled to Active COMMENT: On UT day 26 February, mostly quiet to unsettled conditions were observed in the Australian region. Quiet to storm levels were observed in the Antarctic region. Global geomagnetic conditions are expected to be quiet to unsettled on UT day 27 February and mostly quiet on 28 February. On 1 March geomagnetic activity is expected to reach active levels with possible minor storm periods due to coronal hole effects.
