Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 270 Issued at 2200Z on 27 Sep 2007
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 26/2100Z to 27/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. No flares occurred during the past 24 hours.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 26/2100Z to 27/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was initially quiet. However, a weak shock was seen at ACE at 1054Z, followed by an increase in magnetic field strength and density as well as a small increase in velocity. There were some extended intervals of southward Bz and as a result there was a period of minor to major storm level activity from 1500-1800Z. Conditions declined to active to minor storm levels for remainder of the period (1800-2100Z). Although the observations are not yet conclusive the disturbance appears to be from a transient structure in the solar wind, rather than from a recurrent structure. The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit reached high levels during the past 24 hours.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be unsettled with occasional active periods for the first day (28 September) due to the anticipated onset of a high speed stream from a coronal hole. Activity should strengthen on the second day (29 September) to predominantly active levels with a chance for minor storm periods at high latitudes. Conditions should decline to predominantly unsettled levels on the third day (30 September).
