Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 054 Issued at 2200Z on 23 Feb 2011
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 22/2100Z
to 23/2100Z: Solar activity has been low. Region 1161 (N13W69)
produced the period’s only C-class event, a C1 at 23/1223Z. Both
Region 1161 and Region 1162 (N18W73) have decayed significantly and
have a simple Beta magnetic classification.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
low for the next three days (24-26 February). There is a chance for
an isolated C-class event from Region 1161 before it rotates off
the visible disk.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 22/2100Z to 23/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field has been quiet with an isolated unsettled
period at 23/1500-1800Z.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be predominately quiet on day one (24 February). Quiet
to unsettled conditions are expected on days two and three (25-26
