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 22 May 2018 23:36 UT)

Date Ap Conditions 23 May 10 Quiet to Unsettled 24 May 7 Quiet 25 May 7 Quiet COMMENT: Magnetic conditions were at quiet levels across the Australian region during the UT day, 22 May. Mostly quiet to unsettled magnetic conditions are expected today 23 May in response to moderate solar speed streams emanating from a polar connected, positive polarity coronal hole. Expect magnetic conditions to drop to mostly quiet levels from 24 May as the coronal hole effect wanes.
