SDF Number 221 Issued at 2200Z on 09 Aug 2017
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 08/2100Z to 09/2100Z: Solar activity has been at very low levels for the past 24 hours. There are currently 1 numbered sunspot regions on the disk.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low on days one, two, and three (10 Aug, 11 Aug, 12 Aug).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 08/2100Z to 09/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 468 km/s at 09/1132Z. Total IMF reached 6 nT at 09/1155Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -3 nT at 09/1755Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 7825 pfu.
