Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 059 Issued at 2200Z on 28 Feb 2011
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 27/2100Z
to 28/2100Z: Solar activity was moderate during the past 24 hours.
Region 1164 (N26E33) produced a C2/Sf flare associated with a Type
II Sweep and an M1 event at 28/1252Z.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be low
for the next three days (01-03 March). A chance for M-class activity
exists from Region 1164.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 27/2100Z to 28/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet during the past 24 hours.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: Quiet to unsettled conditions
are expected for the next three days (01-03 March) due to the
effects of a recurrent coronal hole high speed stream.
