SUBJ: SWS WEEKLY GEOPHYSICAL REPORT ISSUED ON 23 JUNE 2022, BY Space Weather Services, FROM THE AUSTRALIAN SPACE FORECAST CENTRE ASWAS SCALE DESCRIPTION: https://bit.ly/3lmaMBx 1. SUMMARY (14 JUNE - 22 JUNE) K indices are in UT (0-24). For conversion to local time: AEST = UT + 10 hours; ACST = UT + 9.5 hours; AWST = UT + 8 hours Australian Region* Date K-INDICES A 14 Jun 2221 1212 5 15 Jun 2333 4312 13 In the SWS magnetometer data for 15 Jun, a weak (14nT) impulse was observed at 0435UT. 16 Jun 1323 2112 7 17 Jun 2223 2231 8 18 Jun 2222 0123 6 19 Jun 2222 2220 6 20 Jun 1122 3321 7 21 Jun 1123 1122 6 22 Jun 1122 3121 6 *estimated from real time 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. G0 conditions. 2. FORECAST (23 JUNE - 23 JULY) Disturbed Periods: No strong recurrent patterns, however mild activity may be experienced on: 24-25 Jun, 13-14 Jul, 17-Jul, 22-23 Jul Best Quiet Periods: 23-Jun, 27-Jun to 11-Jul, 16-Jul, 19-21 Jul. 3. FORECAST FOR HIGH RESOLUTION AEROMAGNETIC SURVEYS Northern Australian Regions: Disturbed Periods: None. Best Quiet Periods: 23 Jun to 23 Jul. Central Australian Regions: Mildly disturbed Periods: 25-27 Jun, 13-17 Jul, 23-Jul. Best Quiet Periods: 23-Jun, 28-Jun to 12-Jul, 18-22 Jul. Southern Australian Regions: Disturbed Periods: 25-27 Jun, 13-17 Jul, 23-Jul. Best Quiet Periods: 23-Jun, 28-Jun to 12-Jul, 18-22 Jul. Pc3 pulsations are high frequency (10-45 second period) variations of the Earths magnetic field. 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. PLEASE NOTE: Geomagnetic activity can frequently be determined by short timescale solar events that cannot be forecast a week in advance, particularly at solar maximum.
