Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 027 Issued at 2200Z on 27 Jan 2011
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 26/2100Z
to 27/2100Z: Solar activity was at low levels. Region 1149 (N16W90)
produced two C1 flares at 27/1201Z and 27/2003Z. A Type II radio
sweep was observed at 27/1208Z, with an estimated velocity of 901
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be at
very low to low levels on day one (28 January). There remains a
slight chance for a C-class flare as Region 1149 rotates off the
limb. Activity is expected to be very low on days two and three
(29-30 January).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 26/2100Z to 27/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was at quiet levels, with isolated unsettled
periods at high latitudes.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be at predominantly quiet levels for the next three days
(28-30 January).
