Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 019 Issued at 2200Z on 19 Jan 2010
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 18/2100Z
to 19/2100Z: Solar activity was moderate. The new region rotating on
to the east limb (new Region 1041, near S27) produced an M2.3 flare
at 19/1341Z and an M1.7 flare at 19/2035Z, as well as three
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be low
to moderate. Occasional C-class flares are expected. Isolated
M-class flares are likely.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 18/2100Z to 19/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet to unsettled, with isolated active levels at
high latitudes, on day one (20 January) due to a coronal hole
high-speed stream. Quiet levels are expected to return on days two
and three (21-22 January).
