Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity

SDF Number 208 Issued at 2200Z on 27 JUL 1998

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

SOLAR ACTIVITY REMAINED AT VERY LOW LEVELS. A SINGLE B-CLASS X-RAY FLARE WAS DETECTED. REGIONS 8280 (S24E02) AND 8282 (N32E04) WERE STABLE. A WEAK DELTA MAGNETIC CONFIGURATION PERSISTED WITHIN REGION 8282. FOUR NEW REGIONS WERE NUMBERED: 8283 (N27E68), 8284 (N27W24), 8285 (S23E18), AND 8286 (N18E54). ALL OF THE NEW REGIONS WERE SMALL AND MAGNETICALLY SIMPLE.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast
SOLAR ACTIVITY IS EXPECTED TO BE PREDOMINATELY LOW WITH A FAIR CHANCE FOR AN ISOLATED M-CLASS FLARE FROM REGION 8282. IIA. GEOPHYSICAL ACTIVITY SUMMARY FROM 26/2100Z TO 27/2100Z: THE GEOMAGNETIC FIELD WAS QUIET TO UNSETTLED. THE GREATER THAN 2 MEV ELECTRON FLUX REMAINED AT HIGH LEVELS.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast
THE GEOMAGNETIC FIELD IS EXPECTED TO BE QUIET TO UNSETTLED DURING THE FIRST TWO DAYS. UNSETTLED TO ACTIVE LEVELS ARE EXPECTED ON THE FINAL DAY DUE TO CORONAL HOLE EFFECTS. THE GREATER THAN 2 MEV ELECTRON FLUX IS EXPECTED TO DECLINE TO NORMAL TO MODERATE LEVELS BY THE SECOND DAY OF THE FORECAST PERIOD.
