C. Geomagnetic Activity Summary
The geomagnetic field was mostly unsettled to active during the past 24 hours with a minor storm period from 0300-0900 UTC in the mid latitudes, and a minor storm period at high latitudes from both 0300-1200 UTC and 1500-1800 UTC. The coronal-hole induced high speed solar wind flow continues. The greater than 2 MeV electron fluxes reached high levels today.
