Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 014 Issued at 2200Z on 14 Jan 2011
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 13/2100Z
to 14/2100Z: Solar activity was low. Old region 1138 (N12, L=323),
which has yet to rotate onto the visible disk, produced a long
duration C1 x-ray event at 14/0330Z associated with a CME off the
northeast limb. Region 1145 (N16W25) redeveloped spots.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
low to low for the next three days (15 – 17 January).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 13/2100Z to 14/2100Z:
Geomagnetic field activity was mostly quiet. An isolated unsettled
period was observed at mid-latitudes between 14/1500 – 1800Z.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: Geomagnetic field activity is
expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels on day one (15 January)
as the effects of a recurrent coronal hole high speed stream (CH
HSS) become geoeffective. Quiet levels are expected on days two and
three (16 -17 January) as effects from the CH HSS wane.
