Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 249 Issued at 2200Z on 06 Sep 2009
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 05/2100Z
to 06/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. No flares were observed.
The visible disk remained spotless.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 05/2100Z to 06/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was predominantly quiet. A single period of
unsettled levels was observed at mid-latitudes between 06/03-06Z.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be predominantly quiet on day one (07 September). Quiet
to unsettled levels, with isolated active periods possible at high
latitudes, are expected on days two and three (08-09 September). The
increase in activity is due to a recurrent coronal hole high-speed
stream that is expected to become geoeffective.
