Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 249 Issued at 2200Z on 06 Sep 2010
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 05/2100Z
to 06/2100Z: Solar activity has been low. Region 1105 (N19W64)
produced a C2/Sf flare at 06/1459Z.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
low to low.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 05/2100Z to 06/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field has been quiet to active. An isolated active
period occurred between 06/0300-0600Z. Solar wind, as measured at
the ACE spacecraft, indicated a 10 nT enhancement of the total field
with the Bz component reaching around -8 nT during the enhanced
activity interval. The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at
geosynchronous orbit briefly reached high levels during the period.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet for the two days (07-08 September), and quiet
to unsettled on day three (09 September).
