Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 247 Issued at 2200Z on 03 Sep 2004

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 02/2100Z
to 03/2100Z: Solar activity has been very low. The SOHO/LASCO
imagery observed several CME’s during the last 24 hours. There were
two halo events associated with this activity and an analysis
indicates both appear to be backside events. New region 668
(S11W34) was numbered today.

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

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 02/2100Z to 03/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field has been quiet to unsettled. The greater than
2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit reached high levels

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet to unsettled.
