Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 306 Issued at 2200Z on 02 Nov 2001
IA.  Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from  01/2100Z
to 02/2100Z:  Solar activity was moderate. There were two M-class
events during the past 24 hours. The first was an M1/1f at 2352 UTC
from Region 9682 (N12W37), and the second was an M1/Sf at 0809 UTC
from Region 9687 (S19E61). Region 9682 continues to dominate the
disk in size and complexity. Region 9687, however, has exhibited
more frequent flare activity. Region 9684 (N06E00) appears to be
growing slowly and is developing some magnetic complexity.
IB.  Solar Activity Forecast:  Solar activity is expected to be
mostly moderate, but there continues to be a chance for an isolated
major flare event during the next three days. Regions 9682 and 9687
are considered to be the most likely sources for energetic activity.
IIA.  Geophysical Activity Summary 01/2100Z to 02/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet to unsettled.
IIB.  Geophysical Activity Forecast:  The geomagnetic field is
expected to be mostly unsettled for the next three days.
