Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 037 Issued at 2200Z on 06 Feb 2001
IA.  Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from  05/2100Z
to 06/2100Z:  Solar activity was low. Only a few small C-class flares
occurred, including a C1/SF at 05/2321 UTC in Region 9335 (N09E28).
This area continues to grow slowly but so far has only produced
C-level activity. Region 9339 (S11E47) is the largest sunspot group
on the visible disk but does not appear magnetically complex and has
not flared in the past 24 hours. New Regions 9341 (S10E23) and 9342
(S26E56) were numbered.
IB.  Solar Activity Forecast:  Solar activity is expected to be low.
IIA.  Geophysical Activity Summary 05/2100Z to 06/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field ranged from quiet to active levels. Active
conditions were observed at a number of stations during the
06/0600-0900 UTC period. Solar wind information suggest that the
Earth has been under influence of a high-speed coronal hole stream
since about 06/1700 UTC.
IIB.  Geophysical Activity Forecast:  The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet to unsettled.
