Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 301 Issued at 2200Z on 28 Oct 2010
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 27/2100Z
to 28/2100Z: Solar activity was very low during the past 24 hours.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
low to low with a slight chance for an M-class event from Region
1117 (N22W41).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 27/2100Z to 28/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet. The greater than 2 MeV electron
flux at geosynchronous orbit reached high levels during the period.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet on day 1 (29 Oct). Quiet to unsettled
conditions are expected on day 2 (30 Oct) due to a weak CME observed
on 26 October. Quiet conditions are expected to return on day 3 (31
