Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 152 Issued at 2200Z on 01 Jun 2010
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 31/2100Z
to 01/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. The SOHO C2 imagery
observed a slow moving CME at 31/2154Z. The plane of sky speed was
estimated around 307 km/s. This event was correlated with a
disappearing filament located near N30W30. No flares were observed
during the past 24 hours.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 31/2100Z to 01/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was at quiet to active levels. The ACE
spacecraft observations show the continued presence of the coronal
hole high speed stream. Solar wind speeds are around 525 km/s with
IMF Bz at +/- 6 nT. The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at
geosynchronous orbit was at high levels today.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet to unsettled with isolated active conditions
for the next two days (02-03 June). Predominantly quiet levels are
expected for day three (04 June) as the high speed stream subsides.
