cooperation with the following organisations: Geoscience Australia, 
University of Newcastle Space Physics Group, Australian Government 
Antarctic Division and Space Environment Research Center, Japan.


Mostly quiet to unsettled conditions.
Active periods observed on 10 and 12 September.
Minor storm periods observed on 09 September.

2. FORECAST (15 SEPTEMBER - 15 OCTOBER)
Disturbed Periods: 
9-10 Oct.

Best Quiet Periods: 
 15-17 Sep, 20-24 Sep, 26-29 Sep, 2-5 Oct and 12-14 Oct.

3. FORECAST FOR HIGH RESOLUTION AEROMAGNETIC SURVEYS

Northern Australian Regions:
 Disturbed Periods: None.
 Best Quiet Periods:
 20-24 Sep, 26-29 Sep, 2-5 Oct and 12-14 Oct 

Central Australian Regions:
 Disturbed Periods: None.

Southern Australian Regions:
 Disturbed Periods: 9-10 Oct.
 Best Quiet Periods:20-24 Sep, 26-29 Sep,
 2-5 Oct and 12-14 Oct

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.
