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.
Active conditions on 24Feb, 01Mar-02Mar due to coronal hole effects.
Quiet to Unsettled conditions expected for the next 7 days with only
minor coronal hole effects possible 7Mar.
2. FORECAST (05 MARCH - 04 APRIL)
Disturbed Periods: 28-29 Mar.
Best Quiet Periods: 8-15 Mar, 18-21 Mar, 24-26 Mar.
3. FORECAST FOR HIGH RESOLUTION AEROMAGNETIC SURVEYS
Northern Australian Regions: Quiet
Central Australian Regions:
Mild Disturbed Periods: 28-29 Mar, possible 7Mar.
Best Quiet Periods: 5-23 Mar, 25-26 Mar, 30-31 Mar.
Southern Australian Regions:
Disturbed Periods: 28-29 Mar, possible 7Mar.
Best Quiet Periods: 5-22 Mar, 25-26 Mar, 30 Mar.
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
Geomagnetic activity can frequently be determined by short timescale
solar events that cannot be forecast a week in advance, particularly
at solar maximum.
