SUBJ: IPS WEEKLY GEOPHYSICAL REPORT 
ISSUED ON 17 JANUARY 2013, BY IPS RADIO AND SPACE SERVICES,
FROM THE AUSTRALIAN SPACE FORECAST CENTRE

1. SUMMARY (08 JANUARY - 16 JANUARY)
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*

*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.

Quiet to unsettled conditions. A weak (11nT) impulse was observed 
at 0116 UT in the IPS magnetometer data for 14 Jan.

2. FORECAST (17 JANUARY - 16 FEBRUARY)
Disturbed Periods: no strong recurrent patterns, however mild
activity may be experienced on 17 Jan and 9 Feb.

Best Quiet Periods: 18 Jan to 7 Feb, 11 Feb to 16 Feb.

3. FORECAST FOR HIGH RESOLUTION AEROMAGNETIC SURVEYS
Northern Australian Regions:
Disturbed periods: none
Best quiet periods: 17 Jan to 16 Feb

Central Australian Regions:
Mildly disturbed periods: 09 Feb to 10 Feb
Best quiet periods: 18 Jan to 08 Feb, 11 Feb to 16 Feb

Southern Australian Regions:
Disturbed periods: 09 Feb to 10 Feb
Best quiet periods: 18 Jan to 08 Feb, 12 Feb to 16 Feb

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.
