Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 151 Issued at 2200Z on 31 May 2010
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 30/2100Z
to 31/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. New Region 1076 (S19E07)
was numbered today and is a beta magnetic classification. No flares
were observed during the past 24 hours.
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 active levels with one
reporting period at 30/2100Z of minor storm conditions.
Observations from the ACE spacecraft indicate the continued
influence from the coronal hole high speed stream. Solar wind
speeds have increased through the period from 500 km/s to above 600
km/s with IMF Bz fluctuations of +/- 6 nT. The greater than 2 MeV
electron flux at geosynchronous orbit was at high levels today.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be predominantly unsettled with isolated active
conditions for the next three days (01-03 June) due to the coronal
hole high speed stream.
