Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 250 Issued at 2200Z on 07 Sep 2010
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 06/2100Z
to 07/2100Z: Solar activity has been very low. Region 1105 (N19W77)
produced a B4/Sf flare on 07/0528Z. An 11 degree filament near
N11E19 disappeared between 07/1359-1439Z.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
low with a slight chance for a C-class x-ray event on days one and
two (08-09 September). Solar activity is expected to be very low on
day three (10 September) as Region 1105 (N19W77) rotates off the
visible disk.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 06/2100Z to 07/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field has been quiet to active. An isolated active
period occurred between 07/0900-1200Z. Solar wind velocity, as
measured at the ACE spacecraft, indicated an increase to
approximately 500 km/s during the period.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be predominately quiet to unsettled with a slight chance
for isolated active periods during days one and two (08-09
September), due to enhanced solar wind velocity. Day three (10
September) is expected to be quiet as the solar wind speed is
forecast to subside.
