B. Proton Events
Solar proton events at greater than 100 MeV and greater than 10 MeV followed the X14 flare. The greater than 100 MeV event began at 15/1405 UTC, reached a maximum of 146 PFU at 15/1525 UTC, then gradually decreased to 12 PFU by the close of the period. The greater than 10 MeV event began at 15/1410 UTC and reached a maximum of 951 PFU at 15/1920 UTC. The greater than 10 MeV flux was 551 PFU at the close of the period and slowly decreasing.
C. Geomagnetic Activity Summary
Activity ranged from quiet to active levels.
