Magnetospheric Geonome Project: sequencing convection state

Magnetospheric convection state for the duration of 2010. States include:

0:quiet,
1:weak activity,
2:growth phase,
3:expansion phase,
4:driven phase,
5:multiple intensifications,
6:recovery phase,
7:recovery bay,
8:driven phase onset, and
9:no data.

Each line has the format: yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm X:state descriptor

In each case except 8, the time marks the beginning of a new state of activity, which runs until the following time. In the case of 8, the time marks the occurrence of a driven phase onset, all of which occur during driven phases (4).

Methodology is described in:
