Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 037 Issued at 2200Z on 06 Feb 2011
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 05/2100Z
to 06/2100Z: Solar activity has been at very low levels for the past
24 hours.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be at
very low levels for the next three days (07-09 February).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 05/2100Z to 06/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field has been predominantly unsettled with an
isolated active period from 06/0600Z-0900Z. This enhanced activity
is due to the effects of a waning coronal hole high-speed stream (CH
HSS). The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit
reached high levels during the period.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet to unsettled on day one (07 February) as the
effects of a CH HSS continue to wane. Predominantly quiet levels are
expected on days two and three (08-09 February).
