Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 265 Issued at 2200Z on 22 Sep 2010
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 21/2100Z
to 22/2100Z: Solar activity was at very low levels. There were
numerous B-class events, most of which were produced by Region 1109
(N22E67). Region 1109 is a Dko group with a beta magnetic
configuration and has increased in size over the last 24 hours.
Region 1108 (S30W09) is now an Hhx alpha group.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be at
very low to low levels with a slight chance for M-class events for
the next three days (23-25 September).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 21/2100Z to 22/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field has been at quiet levels during the past 24
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be unsettled to active on days one and two (23-24
September) due to a recurrent coronal hole high speed stream. Day
three (25 September) is expected to be mostly unsettled.
