Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 297 Issued at 2200Z on 24 Oct 2007

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 23/2100Z to 24/2100Z: Solar activity was at very low levels. The visible solar disk remained spotless.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to remain at very low levels.

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 23/2100Z to 24/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was at quiet levels. The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit reached high levels again today.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to active levels due to a coronal hole high speed stream rotating into a geoeffective position on day one (25 October). Minor storm periods at middle latitudes and major storm periods at high latitudes are possible throughout the forecast period (25 – 27 October).

  • Estimated Afr/Ap 24 Oct 005/005
  • Predicted Afr/Ap 25 Oct-27 Oct 015/020-020/025-012/012

VI. Geomagnetic Activity Probabilities 25 Oct-27 Oct

A. Middle Latitudes
