Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 345 Issued at 2200Z on 11 Dec 2010
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 10/2100Z
to 11/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. Today’s activity consisted
of a single B-class flare, a B4 at 1117Z from Region 1131 (N31W47).
Regions 1131 and 1133 (N15W22) were generally quiet and stable
during the past 24 hours.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 10/2100Z to 11/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be generally unsettled for the 1st day (12 December) in
response to a favorably positioned coronal hole. Quiet levels are
expected to prevail for the 2nd and 3rd days (13-14 December).
