Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 031 Issued at 2200Z on 31 Jan 2011
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 30/2100Z
to 31/2100Z: Solar activity has been at very low levels for the past
24 hours. Region 1150 (S20E24) showed no significant changes and
remains a D-type group with a beta magnetic classification.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
low with a chance for C-class events for the next three days (01-03
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 30/2100Z to 31/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field has been at quiet to unsettled levels for the
past 24 hours.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be at quiet levels on day 1 (01 February). Quiet to
unsettled levels with a chance for active periods is expected on
days 2 and 3 (02-03 February), as a recurrent coronal hole
high-speed stream becomes geoeffective.
