Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 283 Issued at 2200Z on 10 Oct 2010
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 09/2100Z
to 10/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. Region 1112 (S18E54)
produced a few moderate level B-class flares during the period.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be at
predominately very low levels with a slight chance for C-class
activity for the next three days (11 – 13 October).
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 to unsettled with isolated active levels at
high latitudes on days one and two (11 – 12 October). This activity
is due to a small, geoeffective coronal hole coupled with glancing
blow effects from the 06 October full-halo CME. Day three (13
October) will see a return to mostly quiet conditions.
