Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 010 Issued at 2200Z on 10 Jan 2010
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 09/2100Z
to 10/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. Region 1040 (N30E18)
produced several B-class flares during the past 24 hours. Region
1040 continued to grow during the past 24 hours and is classified as
a Eao-beta group with 15 spots and an area of approximately of 130
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
low to low. There is a slight chance for an isolated M-class event
from Region 1040.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 09/2100Z to 10/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet on day one (11 January). Quiet, with isolated
unsettled levels, are expected on day two (12 January) as a coronal
hole moves into a geoeffective position. Quiet to unsettled levels,
with a slight chance for active levels, are expected on day three
(13 January).
