Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 153 Issued at 2200Z on 02 Jun 2011
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 01/2100Z
to 02/2100Z: Solar activity was low. Region 1226 (S22E01) produced
several C-class events during the period. This region is a Dsi
group with a beta magnetic classification. A further analysis of
LASCO imagery correlated the C4/1f at 01/1708Z from Region 1226 to a
Earth directed partial-halo CME. This event was observed by STEREO
COR2 imagery at 01/2009Z. Region 1227 (S19E13) is also a D-type
group with a beta magnetic classification. It produced a C3/2n at
02/0746Z with an associated Type IV radio sweep, and a Earth
directed partial-halo CME. STEREO COR2 and LASCO C3 imagery
observed the event with a plane-of-sky speed of 831 km/s. New
Region 1232 (N10E61) was numbered today.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be low
with a slight chance for an M-class event.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 01/2100Z to 02/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet to unsettled. The greater than 2 MeV
electron flux at geosynchronous orbit reached high levels during the
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet to unsettled for day one (03 June). Active
conditions with isolated minor storm levels are expected for day two
(04 June) as a coronal hole high-speed stream becomes geoeffective,
and additional effects from recent CME activity. Day three (05
June) is expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels, with isolated
active conditions.
