Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 092 Issued at 2200Z on 02 Apr 2011
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 01/2100Z
to 02/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. Region 1183 (N15W12)
produced only B-class events.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
low to low with a chance for moderate activity (isolated M-class)
from Region 1183 during the period (03 – 05 April).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 01/2100Z to 02/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was at quiet to active levels in response to a
coronal hole high-speed stream (CH HSS).
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: Geomagnetic activity is
expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels during day one (03
April) with a chance for active levels as CH HSS effects persist.
Activity is expected to decrease to mostly quiet levels during days
two and three (04 – 05 April) as CH HSS effects subside.
