Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 176 Issued at 2200Z on 25 Jun 2011
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 24/2100Z
to 25/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. Region 1236 (N15W76)
produced a B4 flare at 25/1020Z. Region 1236 decayed to an Hsx group
with an alpha magnetic configuration, Region 1240 (S20W26) decayed
to an Axx group with an alpha magnetic configuration, and Region
1241 (N18W19) decayed to a Bxo group with a beta magnetic
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
low through the period, with a chance for an isolated C-class flare.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 24/2100Z to 25/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was at quiet to unsettled levels. Observations
of solar wind from the ACE spacecraft indicated speeds remained
elevated between 540 – 634 km/s, as the coronal hole speed stream
persists. The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous
orbit reached high levels during the period.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels during the period (26 –
28 June).
