Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 011 Issued at 2200Z on 11 Jan 2007

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 10/2100Z to 11/2100Z: Solar activity has been low.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low. There remains a chance for isolated C-flare activity from Region 933 (S05W84).

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 10/2100Z to 11/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was quiet. Solar wind speed has increased steadily the past 48 hours to a current level of approximately 500 km/s. Accompanying values from the ACE magnetometer and SWEPAM instruments suggest the increased solar wind speed is due to an apparent high speed stream.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to range from quiet to unsettled for the forecast period.
