Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 209 Issued at 2200Z on 28 Jul 2010
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 27/2100Z
to 28/2100Z: Solar activity was low. Region 1089 (S24W48) produced a
few B-class x-ray flares as well as a C2 event at 28/2042Z. Newly
numbered Region 1092 (N16E76) remains quiet and stable since
rotating into view.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be low.
There is a chance for a C-class flare as well as a slight chance for
an M-class flare from Region 1089. A slight chance for a C-class
flare also exists from Region 1092.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 27/2100Z to 28/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was mostly quiet to unsettled with the
exception of an isolated period of minor storming between
28/00-28/03Z. The greater than 2MeV electron flux at geosynchronous
orbit reached high levels during the past 24 hours.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
forecast to be mostly quiet to unsettled with a chance for active
conditions on day 1 (29 July). Mostly quiet to unsettled with a
slight chance for active conditions are forecast for days 2 and 3
(30-31 July).
