Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 276 Issued at 2200Z on 03 Oct 2007

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 02/2100Z to 03/2100Z: Solar activity continued at very low levels. The visible disk remained spotless.

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

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 02/2100Z to 03/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was at quiet to active levels. The increase in activity corresponds to a coronal hole high speed stream. Real-time solar wind data showed speed gradually increasing over the period to a maximum of approximately 600 km/s at 03/1555Z. The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit reached high levels.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to active levels on day one (04 October). Minor storm periods may occur at high latitudes. Activity on days two and three (05 and 06 October) should decline to mostly quiet levels.
