Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 095 Issued at 2200Z on 05 Apr 2011
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 04/2100Z
to 05/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. Only B-class flares were
observed. Region 1185 (N23E50) increased from 50 millionths to
approximately 100 millionths in the past 24 hours. Region 1183
(N14W54) decreased from 90 millionths to approximately 20 millionths
in the past 24 hours.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
low to low for the next three days (06 – 08 April).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 04/2100Z to 05/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was at quiet levels. The Ace spacecraft
observed an IP shock at 05/1804Z. The greater than 2 MeV electron
flux at geosynchronous orbit was at high levels throughout the
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: Geomagnetic field activity is
expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels for the next three days
(06 – 08 April) in response to the IP shock mentioned above and
coronal hole high speed effects.
