Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 315 Issued at 2200Z on 11 Nov 2001
IA.  Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from  10/2100Z
to 11/2100Z:  Solar activity was moderate, due to a single M-class
event during the period. Region 9690 (S18W09) produced an M1/Sf
flare at 11/1103 UTC. Region 9690 remains a relatively large sunspot
group with a complex beta-gamma-delta magnetic configuration. This
region remained active through out the period, producing numerous
C-class flares and nearly continuous optical flaring. Spotless
Region 9686 (N15W78) produced a C5/Sf flare at 11/0035 UTC. Region
9697 (N11E76) was numbered today.
IB.  Solar Activity Forecast:  Solar activity is expected to be at
mostly moderate levels with the chance of an isolated major flare
from Region 9690.
IIA.  Geophysical Activity Summary 10/2100Z to 11/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was a mostly quiet levels with isolated
unsettled conditions.
IIB.  Geophysical Activity Forecast:  The geomagnetic field is
expected to continue to be at quiet to unsettled conditions. There
will be a slight chance for a proton flare during the forecast
