Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 012 Issued at 2200Z on 12 Jan 2011
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 11/2100Z
to 12/2100Z: Solar activity remained very low. Region 1140 (N32W87)
and Region 1146 (N24E19) are the only spotted regions on the visible
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
low for the next three days (13 – 15 January).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 11/2100Z to 12/2100Z:
Geomagnetic field activity was at mostly quiet levels. An isolated
unsettled period was observed at 12/1200Z. The greater than 2 MeV
electron flux at geosynchronous orbit reached high levels during the
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: Geomagnetic field activity is
expected to be at mostly quiet levels on day one (13 January).
Activity is expected to increase to quiet to unsettled levels with a
chance of isolated active levels on days two and three (14 – 15
January) as a recurrent coronal hole high speed stream becomes
