Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 281 Issued at 2200Z on 08 Oct 2011
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 07/2100Z
to 08/2100Z: Solar activity was low. Region 1309 (N22W11) produced
the lone C-class event at 08/0420Z. All of the regions on the disk
remained relatively stable.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
low to low for the next three days (09-11 October).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 07/2100Z to 08/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was mostly quiet during the past 24 hours.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet to unsettled on days one and two (09-10
October) due to the effects of a coronal hole high speed stream (CH
HSS). Mostly quiet conditions are expected on day three (11 October)
as the effects from the CH HSS subside.
