Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 029 Issued at 2200Z on 29 Jan 2011
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 28/2100Z
to 29/2100Z: Solar activity has been at very low levels for the past
24 hours. Region 1150 (S22E50) has remained stable while producing
several B-class events. Region 1151 (N11W71) decayed to spotless
plage late in the period.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be at
very low levels with a slight chance for C-class events for the next
three days (30 January – 01 February).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 28/2100Z to 29/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field has been at predominantly quiet levels for the
past 24 hours.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be at predominantly quiet levels for the next two days
(30-31 January). Quiet to unsettled levels are expected late on day
three (01 February) as a recurrent coronal hole high-speed stream
moves into a geoeffective position.
