SDF Number 344 Issued at 2200Z on 10 Dec 2010
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 09/2100Z
to 10/2100Z: Solar activity was at very low levels. No significant
changes were noted on the disk or limb.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to remain
at very low levels for the next three days (11 – 13 December).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 09/2100Z to 10/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was at quiet levels. Observations from the ACE
spacecraft indicated a steady change in the solar wind magnetic
field structure from positive (away) to negative (toward) at about
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be at mostly unsettled levels with isolated active
periods for the next three days (11 – 13 December) due to recurrent
coronal hole high speed stream effects.
