Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 217 Issued at 2200Z on 05 Aug 2010
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 04/2100Z
to 05/2100Z: Solar activity remained very low. New region 1094
(N25W57) was numbered today. Region 1094 is a Cso beta sunspot
group. Region 1093 (N11E58) produced several B-class flares during
the period.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
low with a chance for an isolated C-class flare from Regions 1093
and 1094.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 04/2100Z to 05/2100Z:
Geomagnetic field activity ranged from quiet to active levels in
response to CME’s observed on 01 August.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: Geomagnetic field activity is
expected to be mostly quiet with an isolated chance of unsettled
levels at high latitudes during the next three days (06 – 08 August).
