Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 212 Issued at 2200Z on 31 Jul 2009
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 30/2100Z
to 31/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. No flares were observed
during the past 24 hours. The solar disk remains spotless.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 30/2100Z to 31/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was at quiet to unsettled levels. Solar wind
observations from the ACE spacecraft indicted the presence of a
coronal hole high speed stream. Velocities increased from around
340 km/s to 420 km/s, with +/- 5nT fluctuations in the IMF Bz.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels with a chance for
isolated active conditions for day one (01 August). Predominantly
quiet conditions are expected for days two and three (02-03 August).
