Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 090 Issued at 2200Z on 31 Mar 2011
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 30/2100Z
to 31/2100Z: Solar activity remained at low levels. Region 1176
(S16W51) produced a C2/Sf flare at 31/1535Z. Region 1183 (N15E14)
produced a C1 flare at 31/0202Z. Both regions exhibited gradual
decay during the period. No new regions were assigned.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be low
during the period (01 – 03 April) with a chance for moderate levels
(isolated M-class).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 30/2100Z to 31/2100Z:
Geomagnetic activity was at quiet levels.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: Geomagnetic activity is
expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels on day 1 (01 April) due
to possible coronal hole high-speed stream effects. Activity is
expected to decrease to quiet levels during days 2 – 3 (02 – 03
