Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 203 Issued at 2200Z on 22 Jul 2001
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 21/2100Z
to 22/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. X-ray emission remained
below C-level during the past 24 hours. Region 9543 (S22W19) remains
the largest group on the disk and showed slight growth in some of
the middle spots. Region 9545 (N09W57) showed some growth but was
very stable and quiet.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be low
for the next three days. There is, however, a very slight chance for
an isolated M-class event from Region 9543.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 21/2100Z to 22/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet to unsettled during the past 24
hours. The greater than 2 MeV electron fluxes declined from high
levels at 21/2325 UTC and remained below this threshold for the
remainder of the period.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet to unsettled for the next 24 hours. A slight
increase to unsettled with a possibility for isolated active periods
is predicted for the second and third days due to coronal hole
