Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 210 Issued at 2200Z on 29 Jul 2010
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 28/2100Z
to 29/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. Region 1092 (N14E63)
produced a pair of B-class flares, the largest a B7 event at
29/1847Z. Region 1089 (S24W62) has been quiet and stable while
decreasing in area.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is forecast to be very
low, with a slight chance for a C-class flare for the next 3 days
(30 July-1 August).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 28/2100Z to 29/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet to unsettled. 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 days 1 and 2 (30-31 July). Conditions are forecast to
return to mostly quiet on day 3 (1 August).
