Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 099 Issued at 2200Z on 09 Apr 2006
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 08/2100Z to 09/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. Region 865 has rotated around the west limb. All other regions have remained quiescent. No new regions were numbered today.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 08/2100Z to 09/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was at quiet to minor storm levels, with major storming at high latitudes. The geomagnetic storm was the result of a co-rotating interaction region preceding the high speed stream from a coronal hole.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be unsettled to active with a chance for minor storm conditions on 10 April. Quiet to unsettled conditions are expected on 11 – 12 April.
