Joint USAF/NOAA Solar Geophysical Activity Report and Forecast
SDF Number 336 Issued at 2200Z on 01 Dec 2020
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 30/2100Z to 01/2100Z: Solar activity has been at very low levels for the past 24 hours. There are currently 3 numbered sunspot regions on the disk.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low with a chance for a C-class flares and a slight chance for an M-class flare on days one, two, and three (02 Dec, 03 Dec, 04 Dec).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 30/2100Z to 01/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 490km/s at 01/1914Z. Total IMF reached 5 nT at 01/1744Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -3 nT at 30/2217Z. Protons greater than 10 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 6 pfu at 01/0655Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 594 pfu.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels on day one (02 Dec) and quiet levels on days two and three (03 Dec, 04 Dec).
