Solar wind and global magnetic activity


The plot depicts the solar and geomagnetic activity information. The upper plot shows the global Kp index provided by the GFZ Potsdam. Values between 0 and 3 indicate weak magnetic activity, 4 to 6 correspond to moderate activity and values above 6 to strong geomagnetic activity. Below, solar wind parameters as obtained by the DSCOVR Satellite (NASA/ESA) are shown.
