Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 317 Issued at 2200Z on 13 Nov 2011
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 12/2100Z
to 13/2100Z: Solar activity was low. Frequent low-level C-class
flares occurred, most of which were produced by Region 1344
(S18W73). Region 1344 showed little change during the period, but
analysis was hampered by limb proximity. The same was true of Region
1339 (N19W75) as it approached the west limb. Region 1341 (N10W22)
showed gradual spot development in its intermediate and trailer
portions and produced a single C-class flare. New Region 1347
(N07E55) emerged early in the period and appeared to be in a gradual
growth phase. It produced a single C-class flare. No Earth-directed
CMEs were observed during the period.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be low
through the period (14 – 16 November). There will be a slight chance
for an isolated M-class flare until Regions 1339 and 1344 depart the
west limb early on 15 November.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 12/2100Z to 13/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be at mostly quiet levels during the period (14 – 16
