Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 152 Issued at 2200Z on 31 May 2012
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 30/2100Z
to 31/2100Z: Solar activity was low during the past 24 hours. New
Regions 1493 (N15E64) and 1494 (S16E69) were numbered overnight and
have each produced several low-level C-class x-ray events. New
Region 1495 (S12E19) was also numbered today but has not produced
any flare activity as of yet. No Earth-directed CME’s were observed
during the period.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be low
for the next three days (01 – 03 June).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 30/2100Z to 31/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was mostly quiet during the past 24 hours.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be mostly quiet on days one and two (01 – 02 June).
Quiet to unsettled conditions with a chance for isolated active
periods are expected late on day three (03 June) due to the
anticipated arrival of a recurrent coronal hole high speed stream.
