Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity

SDF Number 086 Issued at 2200Z on 27 MAR 1998

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 26-2100Z to 27-2100Z

SOLAR ACTIVITY WAS LOW. A C1 LONG DURATION EVENT WITH A TYPE II RADIO SWEEP OCCURRED AT 27/0046Z. GROUND AND SPACE BASED OBSERVATIONS INDICATE REGION 8188 (N30E30) AS THE SOURCE REGION. A CME IN THE NE QUADRANT OF THE DISK WAS LIKELY ASSOCIATED WITH THIS FLARE. REGION 8185 (S25W03) ALSO PRODUCED A C1/SF AT 27/1603Z. SEVERAL OPTICALLY UNCORRELATED RADIO BURSTS AND SWEEPS ALSO OCCURRED INCLUDING A 610MHZ, 2700SFU BURST AT 27/1454Z. NEW REGION 8189 (S27W17) WAS NUMBERED TODAY AND PRODUCED A C1/SF AT 27/1323Z.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast
SOLAR ACTIVITY SHOULD BE LOW TO MODERATE THROUGH THE PERIOD. REGION 8185 REMAINS CAPABLE OF PRODUCING ISOLATED M-CLASS EVENTS. IIA. GEOPHYSICAL ACTIVITY SUMMARY FROM 26/2100Z TO 27/2100Z: THE GEOMAGNETIC FIELD WAS QUIET TO UNSETTLED THROUGH THE PERIOD.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast
THE GEOMAGNETIC FIELD SHOULD BE QUIET TO UNSETTLED THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD.
