Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity

SDF Number 320 Issued at 2200Z on 16 NOV 1997

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 15-2100Z to 16-2100Z

SOLAR ACTIVITY WAS MODERATE. REGION 8108 (N21E42) PRODUCED AN M1/1N TENFLARE AT 15/2246Z. REGION 8108 ALSO PRODUCED A SMALL C1/SF FLARE AT 16/0125Z. THIS REGION HAS DECREASED IN OVERALL SIZE BUT HAS INCREASED ITS NUMBER OF SPOTS. IT IS NOW AN EAI SPOT GROUP WITH A COMPLEX MAGNETIC CLASSIFICATION. TWO UNCORRELATED C-CLASS X-RAY BURSTS WERE ALSO DETECTED AT THE END OF THE PERIOD. NEW REGION 8109 (S18E66), A SINGLE HRX SPOT SO FAR, WAS NUMBERED TODAY. THIS APPEARS TO BE RETURNING REGION 8101.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast
SOLAR ACTIVITY IS EXPECTED TO BE LOW TO MODERATE. REGION 8108 HAS A GOOD CHANCE OF C-CLASS ACTIVITY AND A CHANCE OF ISOLATED M-CLASS ACTIVITY. IIA. GEOPHYSICAL ACTIVITY SUMMARY FROM 15/2100Z TO 16/2100Z: THE GEOMAGNETIC FIELD HAS BEEN QUIET TO UNSETTLED AT ALL LATITUDES.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast
THE GEOMAGNETIC FIELD IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN QUIET TO UNSETTLED FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS, THEN BECOME MOSTLY UNSETTLED FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. HIGH LATITUDES MAY EXPERIENCE PERIODS OF ACTIVE LEVELS THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD. SLIGHTLY INCREASED ACTIVITY IS EXPECTED AS A RESULT OF THE OBSERVED CORONAL MASS EJECTION OF THE EAST SOLAR LIMB TWO DAYS AGO.
