B. Proton Events
THE GREATER THAN 10 MEV PROTON FLUX AT GEOSYNCHRONOUS ORBIT REMAINED ABOVE THRESHOLD VALUES THROUGHOUT THE PERIOD. FLUX PEAKED AT 84 PFU'S AT 08/0940Z, AND DECREASED TO ABOUT 14 PFU BY END PERIOD.
C. Geomagnetic Activity Summary
THE GEOMAGNETIC FIELD WAS AT UNSETTLED TO SEVERE STORM LEVELS. A SUDDEN IMPULSE OCCURRED AT 08/0909Z (77 NT, AS MEASURED BY THE BOULDER USGS MAGNETOMETER) AS A RESULT OF SHOCK ARRIVAL MEASUED AT THE ACE SPACECRAFT, WHERE SOLAR WIND VELOCITY JUMPED FROM 520 TO OVER 800 KM/S AT 08/0841Z AND BZ DROPPED TO ABOUT -20NT. MINOR TO SEVERE STORM LEVELS WERE OBSERVED FOLLOWING THE SHOCK ARRIVAL. THIS SHOCK IS PRESUMED TO BE RELATED TO THE X2/3B EVENT ON 06 JUNE.
