Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 201 Issued at 2200Z on 20 Jul 2010
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 19/2100Z
to 20/2100Z: Solar activity was low due to a C1/Sf flare at 1345Z
from Region 1089 (S24E58). Region 1089 is a moderate-sized D-type
sunspot group with a beta magnetic classification.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
low to low. There is a chance for additional C-class events from
Region 1089.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 19/2100Z to 20/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet to unsettled during the next three days (21-23
July). A gradual increase in activity is expected due to a favorably
positioned coronal hole.
