Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 282 Issued at 2200Z on 09 Oct 2011
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 08/2100Z
to 09/2100Z: Solar activity has been low. New Region 1314 (N26E72)
was numbered today and produced a C1 flare at 09/1327Z. Region 1309
(N23W24) decayed slightly and is now considered an Hsx-alpha type
group. All other regions on the disk remained relatively stable and
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to remain
low for the next three days (10-12 October).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 08/2100Z to 09/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was mostly unsettled with an isolated active
period from 09/0300-0600Z due to solar sector boundary changes.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet to unsettled with a slight chance for isolated
active periods on day one (10 October) due to effects from a coronal
hole high speed stream (CH HSS). Mostly quiet conditions are
expected on days two and three (11-12 October) as effects from the
CH HSS subside.
