Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 018 Issued at 2200Z on 18 Jan 2011
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 17/2100Z
to 18/2100Z: Solar activity remained at very low levels. Region 1147
(N26E37) showed a slight increase in area and was classified as a
Cso beta-gamma group. Region 1147 remained the sole source of
today’s occasional to isolated B-class flares. Region 1148 (S28W46)
is currently classified as a Cro-beta group with two spots.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
low to low during the period (19-21 January). There is a chance for
an isolated C-class flare.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 17/2100Z to 18/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was at quiet levels during the period.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be at quiet levels for the next three days (19-21
