Geophysical report

Any mentioned solar flare in this report has a scaling factor applied by the Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC). Because of the SWPC scaling factor, solar flares are reported as 42% smaller than for the science quality data. The scaling factor has been removed from our archived solar flare data to reflect the true physical units.

B. Proton Events
None.
C. Geomagnetic Activity Summary
The geomagnetic field was at unsettled to active levels the first half of the period due to residual CME effects, before it settled to quiet levels the remainder of the period.
