Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 231 Issued at 2200Z on 19 Aug 2001
IA.  Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from  18/2100Z
to 19/2100Z:  Solar activity was low. Only a few small subflares
occurred, none of which with significant x-ray output. Region 9585
(N15E37) continued to grow but at a slower pace. New Region 9588
(S32W55) emerged on the disk.
IB.  Solar Activity Forecast:  Solar activity is expected to be low.
IIA.  Geophysical Activity Summary 18/2100Z to 19/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet to unsettled. The greater than 10 MeV
solar energetic proton event ended (start 16/0135 UTC, 493 pfu peak
at 16/0355 UTC, and end 18/1845 UTC).
IIB.  Geophysical Activity Forecast:  The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet to unsettled.
