B. Proton Events
C. Geomagnetic Activity Summary
The geomagnetic field has been quiet to unsettled. The greater than 100 MeV proton event ended at 19/0325 UTC (start 18/0315 UTC, 12 pfu peak at 18/0600 UTC). The polar cap absorption (PCA) event has also ended (19/1400 UTC). The greater than 10 MeV proton event continues in progress (start 18/0315 UTC, 321 pfu peak at 18/1045 UTC, and current flux about 15 pfu at 19/2100 UTC) and is slowly decaying.
