Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 347 Issued at 2200Z on 13 Dec 2010
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 12/2100Z
to 13/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. Regions 1134 (N19W33) and
1135 (N18E56) were numbered during the last 24 hours.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to remain
very low for the next three days (14-16 December). There is a
slight chance for a C-class event.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 12/2100Z to 13/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet to unsettled during the past 24 hours
in response to a coronal hole high speed stream.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to return to mostly quiet conditions for days one and two
(14-15 December). Quiet to unsettled conditions are expected on day
three (16 December) as a recurrent coronal high speed stream rotates
into a geoeffective position.
