Joint USAF/NOAA Solar Geophysical Activity Report and Forecast
SDF Number 145 Issued at 2200Z on 25 May 2013
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 24/2100Z to
25/2100Z: Solar activity has been at low levels for the past 24 hours.
The largest solar event of the period was a C2 event observed at
25/1049Z from Region 1755 (N11E12). There are currently 6 numbered
sunspot regions on the disk.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be low with
a chance for M-class flares on days one, two, and three (26 May, 27 May,
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 24/2100Z to 25/2100Z: The geomagnetic
field has been at unsettled to minor storm levels for the past 24 hours.
Solar wind speed, as measured by the ACE spacecraft, reached a peak
speed of 725 km/s at 25/2100Z. Total IMF reached 13 nT at 25/2040Z. The
maximum southward component of Bz reached -11 nT at 25/2048Z. Protons
greater than 10 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 16
pfu at 24/2110Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit
reached a peak level of 943 pfu.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected
to be at quiet to minor storm levels on day one (26 May) and quiet to
unsettled levels on days two and three (27 May, 28 May).
