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 Nov 2019 23:31 UT)

Date Ap Conditions 19 Nov 6 Quiet 20 Nov 12 Mostly quiet to unsettled, isolated active periods possible 21 Nov 16 Mostly unsettled to active COMMENT: Geomagnetic activity stayed at quiet levels in the Australian/NZ regions and from quiet to unsettled levels in the Antarctic regions through UT day 18 November. Global geomagnetic activity is expected to stay mostly at quiet levels through UT day 19 November and then show a gradual rise to unsettled and later active levels through UT days 20 and 21 November due to the effect of a recurrent positive polarity coronal hole.
