Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 249 Issued at 2200Z on 05 Sep 2008
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 04/2100Z to 05/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. No flares occurred during the past 24 hours and the solar disk continues to be spotless.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 04/2100Z to 05/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was predominantly quiet during the past 24 hours, with the exception of an unsettled period from 0300-0600Z. Solar wind observations at ACE show a generally declining trend in the solar wind velocity with values around 500 km/s at the end of the period. The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit reached high levels during the past 24 hours.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet to unsettled for the next two days (06-07 September). Activity is expected to decrease to quiet levels for the third day (08 September).
