Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 002 Issued at 2200Z on 02 Jan 2011
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 01/2100Z
to 02/2100Z: Solar activity remained at very low levels. Region 1140
(N32E40) was the sole source of today’s occasional B-class flares.
It remained an H-type group with no significant changes noted.
Region 1141 (N34W39) decayed to a B-type group. Region 1142 (S12E21)
showed a minor increase in area and remained a D-type group with a
beta magnetic configuration. No new regions were numbered.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be at
very low to low levels during the period (03 – 05 January) with a
chance for an isolated C-class flare.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 01/2100Z to 02/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet through the period (03 – 05 January).
