Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 360 Issued at 2200Z on 26 Dec 2010
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 25/2100Z
to 26/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. Regions 1136 (S22W71) and
1137 (N18E10) remained stable with little change. No significant
x-ray events were observed during the period.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 25/2100Z to 26/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels for day one (27
December) due to possible effects from the CME observed on 23
December. Quiet conditions are expected for days two and three
(28-29 December).
