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.

Date Ap Conditions 18 Oct 15 Unsettled to Active 19 Oct 15 Unsettled to Active 20 Oct 10 Quiet to Unsettled COMMENT: The geomagnetic conditions in the Australian region were quiet to unsettled on UT day 17 October. Unsettled levels were in response to a sustained Bz southward orientation. Storm levels were observed in the Antarctic region. Geomagnetic conditions are expected to increase to active levels with a slight chance of minor storm levels from late 18 October due to coronal hole effects.
