Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 240 Issued at 2200Z on 28 Aug 2001
IA.  Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from  27/2100Z
to 28/2100Z:  Solar activity has been moderate.  There were three
M-class events observed during the period.  Region 9591 (S19W06)
produced an M1/1N at 28/0012 UTC.  Region 9601 (N12E73) produced an
M1/Sf at 28/0840 UTC and an M1/Sn at 28/1611 UTC with an associated
Type II and Type IV radio sweep.  Region 9591 remains the largest
region on the disk and maintains its Fki beta-gamma-delta
IB.  Solar Activity Forecast:  Solar activity is expected to be
moderate.  A major flare is possible from Region 9591.
IIA.  Geophysical Activity Summary 27/2100Z to 28/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field has been quiet to active.
IIB.  Geophysical Activity Forecast:  The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet to unsettled for the next three days.
