Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 070 Issued at 2200Z on 11 Mar 2006

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 10/2100Z to 11/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. Region 856 (S09W89) produced a long-duration B-class flare at 11/1400Z. No evidence of an associated CME was observed; however, LASCO imagery was not available at the time of issue.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low.

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 10/2100Z to 11/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was quiet to active. Active conditions followed the onset of a coronal hole high speed stream.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet to unsettled with a chance for isolated active periods on 12 March. Quiet to unsettled conditions are expected for 13-14 March.
