Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 246 Issued at 2200Z on 02 Sep 2004

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 01/2100Z
to 02/2100Z: Solar activity has been very low. A long duration B6.0
flare occurred at 02/0256 UTC which appears to be associated with
activity around the NW limb. Region 667 (S10E62) has an alpha
magnetic configuration and has grown slightly in white light

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
low to low.

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

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet to unsettled. Isolated periods of active
levels are possible on 03 September due to a CME observed on 31
