B. Proton Events
There were no proton events detected at geosynchronous orbit. However, the greater than 10 MeV proton flux continued at enhanced levels (due to recent major flare activity) as it gradually declined toward background levels.
C. Geomagnetic Activity Summary
Activity was at unsettled to active levels until 14/0900 UTC, then decreased to quiet to unsettled levels.
