The problem is that not everything that occurs in nature, and the universe can be quantified and predicted. The forces that control geomagnetic events, alongside other natural events, can be quite unpredictable.

The big question is IF and WHEN it hits the earth - and when the ultra-low frequency effects (are) occur(ing). imho - the scientific evidence is sufficient to link geomagnetic activity with heart, stroke and chronic disease/mental health flare-ups. Daily reports are warranted.
fyi - I started this thread back in 2011 - might be what you're looking for.

NASA's Magnetospheric Multiscale Mission (MMS) to provide first 3-D view of Earth's magnetic reconnection process
"MMS will help us study the phenomena known as magnetic reconnection and help us understand how energy from the sun – magnetic and otherwise – affects our own life here on Earth. MMS will study what effects that process … and how the magnetosphere protects Earth."
Magnetic reconnection is the process whereby magnetic fields around Earth connect and disconnect while explosively releasing vast amounts of energy.
MMS measurements should lead to significant improvements in models for yielding better predictions of space weather and thereby the resulting impacts on life of Earth as well as satellite explorers in orbit and the heavens beyond.
….The spacecraft will use the Earth itself as a laboratory to unlock the mysteries of magnetic reconnection – the primary process that transfers energy from the solar wind into Earth's magnetosphere and is responsible for geomagnetic storms.
The best place to study magnetic reconnection is in situ in Earth's magnetosphere. This will lead to better predictions of space weather phenomena.
SWARM is drawing the Earth's magnetic field in 3D
(Nanowerk News) Thanks to a constellation of three satellites, ESA’s SWARM mission will track and measure the planet’s magnetic forces from its core to its upper atmosphere. Five months after the launch, the satellites are beginning to gather data.
……..The SWARM mission is now fully deployed. Five months after they were launched, the three satellites are now positioned onto their respective orbits and have begun sending their first data “with a precision that took earlier missions 10 years to achieve”, European Space Agency (ESA) specialists comment on the mission’s website. For four years, the satellites will track and measure the strength, direction and changes in the Earth's magnetic field. The project will give scientists unprecedented insight into the subtle workings of this force field that act like a shield protecting our biosphere from the Sun’s charged particles, heavy ions and cosmic radiation.
This rich collection of data will be used in many different ways. First of all, the scientists will model the geomagnetic field and its interaction with other physical aspects of the Earth. To be monitored are the magnetic properties of the planet’s core all the way to its upper atmosphere, thus offering a unique view of the composition and processes of the planet interior, as well as the atmospheric and ocean processes that affect climate and weather. Furthermore, the mission will investigate how the Earth’s slight oblateness affects the force and intensity of gravity from one location to another.
“There is one more goal,” says scientist Florian Gallien at the Swiss space Center. “The magnetic field has weakened by 10-15% over the last 200 years, meaning that an inversion of the poles may be possible. The South could become the North and conversely and has already happened in the past. SWARM will watch how it evolves over time.
