B. Proton Events
The greater than 100 MeV proton event has ended: start 17/1215 UTC, 28 pfu peak at 17/1700 UTC, and end 18/2205 UTC. The greater than 10 MeV proton event remains in progress but is decaying: start 16/0210 UTC and 5040 pfu peak at 17/1750 UTC. Proton fluxes have decreased enough for the GOES electron sensors and ACE SWEPAM instruments to again provide reliable data.
C. Geomagnetic Activity Summary
The geomagnetic disturbance remained in progress at the unsettled to severe storm level.
