Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity

SDF Number 085 Issued at 2200Z on 25 MAR 2000

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 24-2100Z to 25-2100Z

SOLAR ACTIVITY WAS LOW. REGION 8926 (S10W45) WAS THE MOST ACTIVE REGION DURING THE PERIOD. THIS REGION PRODUCED SEVERAL C-CLASS EVENTS, THE LARGEST BEING A C8/SF AT 25/0947UT. REGION 8926 DIMINISHED IN SIZE SLIGHTLY DURING THE DAY BUT ALSO DEVELOPED INTO A MORE COMPLEX BETA-GAMMA MAGNETIC CLASSIFICATION. REGIONS 8924 (N10E41), 8925 (S18E50), AND 8928 (N19E45) WERE ALSO ACTIVE DURING THE PERIOD PRODUCING ISOLATED OPTICAL SUBFLARES. THE REST OF THE REGIONS WERE MOSTLY STABLE AND SHOWED VERY LITTLE ACTIVITY DURING THE DAY. AN 20 DEGREE LONG, DISAPPEARING SOLAR FILAMENT (DSF) WAS DETECTED NEAR S54E07.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast
SOLAR ACTIVITY IS EXPECTED TO BE MOSTLY LOW WITH THE POSSIBILITY OF ISOLATED M-CLASS EVENTS. IIA. GEOPHYSICAL ACTIVITY SUMMARY FROM 24/2100Z TO 25/2100Z: THE GEOMAGNETIC FIELD WAS QUIET TO UNSETTLED. THE SOLAR WIND SPEED BEGAN TO DECREASE DURING THE PERIOD, INDICATING THAT THE EARTH IS MOVING OUT OF THE HIGH-SPEED CORONAL HOLE STREAM.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast
THE GEOMAGNETIC FIELD IS EXPECTED TO BE QUIET TO UNSETTLED.
