SDF Number 11 Issued at 2200Z on 11 Jan 2022
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 10/2100Z to 11/2100Z: Solar activity has been at low levels for the past 24 hours. The largest solar event of the period was a C1 event observed at 11/0838Z. There are currently 4 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 on days one, two, and three (12 Jan, 13 Jan, 14 Jan).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 10/2100Z to 11/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 422 km/s at 11/0133Z. Total IMF reached 6 nT at 11/2011Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -4 nT at 11/1438Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 123 pfu.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet levels on days one, two, and three (12 Jan, 13 Jan, 14 Jan).
