Ionospheric Forecast

(last updated 22 Jan 2019 23:30 UT)

Date T index MUFs 23 Jan -20 Near predicted monthly values 24 Jan -30 Near predicted monthly values 25 Jan -20 Near predicted monthly values COMMENT: On UT day 22 January, MUFs were moderately depressed to mostly near predicted monthly values across the Australian region. Sporadic E layers were seen across the Australian region. Near predicted to moderately depressed MUFs are expected for today (UT day 23 January), as a consequence of very low levels of ionising radiation from the Sun. Slightly stronger depressions are expected on UT day 24 January as an aftermath of the forecasted geomagnetic activity associated with the approaching coronal hole effects.
