Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 275 Issued at 2200Z on 02 Oct 2007

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 01/2100Z to 02/2100Z: Solar activity was at very low levels. The visible disk is spotless.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to remain at very low levels for the forecast period.

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 01/2100Z to 02/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was at quiet to unsettled levels. The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit remained at high levels today.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to active levels on 03 October as a recurrent coronal hole rotates into a geoeffective position. Minor storm periods are also possible at high latitudes. On 04 October, activity is expected to decrease to quiet to unsettled conditions. Mostly quiet levels are expected on 05 October.
