Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 256 Issued at 2200Z on 13 Sep 2009
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 12/2100Z
to 13/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. No flares were observed.
The visible disk remained spotless.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 12/2100Z to 13/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was predominantly quiet. A single unsettled
period was observed at high latitudes between 13/1500-1800Z.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet, with isolated unsettled periods on day one (14
September). Quiet to unsettled levels, with isolated active periods
at high latitudes, are expected on days two and three (15-16
September) due to a recurrent coronal hole high-speed stream.
