Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 347 Issued at 2200Z on 12 Dec 2000
IA.  Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from  11/2100Z
to 12/2100Z:  Solar activity was moderate, by virtue of a single
M1/1f flare originating from Region 9267 (N07E26) at 12/1507Z. 
Other activity included only a few minor C-class events.
IB.  Solar Activity Forecast:  Solar activity is expected to be
mostly low, with a continued probability for isolated minor M-class
events from Region 9267.  Old active regions due to return in the
next two days could provide additional increased activity based on
their previous rotations.
IIA.  Geophysical Activity Summary 11/2100Z to 12/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was mostly quiet, with a single period of
unsettled conditions recorded at Boulder during the interval
IIB.  Geophysical Activity Forecast:  The geomagnetic field is
expected to remain quiet to unsettled for the next three days.
