Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 253 Issued at 2200Z on 10 Sep 2006

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 09/2100Z to 10/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. Region 909 (S11W30) produced a long duration B6 event at 10/0723 UTC.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low with a slight chance for an isolated C-class event.

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 09/2100Z to 10/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was quiet to unsettled. The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit was at high levels.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet to unsettled for 12-13 September due to possible effects from a coronal hole high speed stream. Quiet conditions are expected for 14 September.
