Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 161 Issued at 2200Z on 10 Jun 2011
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 09/2100Z
to 10/2100Z: Solar activity was low. A C2 x-ray flare occurred at
10/1751Z and appeared to originate from old Region 1226 (S22,
L=037), which crossed the west limb yesterday. Region 1234 (S16E43)
produced an isolated B-class flare and remained a simply-structured
Bxo-type group. No new regions were assigned.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
low through the period (11 – 13 June) with a chance for an isolated
C-class flare.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 09/2100Z to 10/2100Z:
Geomagnetic activity was at quiet to active levels during the period.
Active levels occurred at Boulder during 09/2100 – 10/0000Z
associated with increased solar wind speeds and IMF Bt, coupled with
a period of southward IMF Bz. Quiet to unsettled levels occurred
after 10/0000Z. A geomagnetic sudden impulse (SI) occurred at
10/0855Z (15 nT, Boulder USGS magnetometer). The SI was in response
to the arrival of the halo-coronal mass ejection observed on 07
June. The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit
reached high levels during the period.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: Geomagnetic activity is
expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels during the period (11 –
13 June) with a chance for brief active levels during 11 – 12 June
due to a coronal hole high-speed stream, expected to commence on 11
