Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 339 Issued at 2200Z on 05 Dec 2009
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 04/2100Z
to 05/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. No significant flares
were observed during the past 24 hours. The visible solar disk is
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 04/2100Z to 05/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet. Solar wind observations from the
ACE spacecraft indicate the onset of a co-rotating interaction
region at around 06/0530Z. Solar wind velocity and density
increased slightly with fluctuations in the IMF Bt and Bz.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet to unsettled, with a slight chance for isolated
active conditions, for day one (06 December) due to a coronal hole
high speed stream. Conditions are expected to be predominately
quiet for days two and three (07-08 December).
