Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 291 Issued at 2200Z on 18 Oct 2007
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 17/2100Z to 18/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. The visible disk remains spotless.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to remain very low.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 17/2100Z to 18/2100Z: The geomagnetic field began the summary period at quiet levels and became briefly active between 09-12Z as a recurrent coronal hole high speed stream became geoeffective. Activity since 12Z has been quiet to unsettled.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to range from unsettled to active for the next three days under the continued influence of the high speed stream.
