Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity

SDF Number 188 Issued at 2200Z on 06 JUL 2000

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 05-2100Z to 06-2100Z

SOLAR ACTIVITY WAS LOW. ISOLATED C-CLASS EVENTS, AMONG THEM A C4/SF FROM REGION 9070 (N18E15) WITH ASSOCIATED TYPE II SWEEP AT 1236Z, OCCURRED. ANOTHER C4, WITH NO OPTICAL ASSOCIATION, WAS DETECTED AT 2045Z. TWO NEW REGIONS, 9075 (N06E64) AND 9076 (S24E69) WERE NUMBERED. REGIONS 9068 (S18W03) AND 9070 WERE THE MOST IMPRESSIVE OF THE 13 REGIONS VISIBLE.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast
SOLAR ACTIVITY IS EXPECTED TO PERSIST AT LOW LEVELS FOR THE NEXT 72 HOURS. IIA. GEOPHYSICAL ACTIVITY SUMMARY FROM 05/2100Z TO 06/2100Z: THE GEOMAGNETIC FIELD HAS BEEN QUIET.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast
THE GEOMAGNETIC FIELD IS EXPECTED TO BE AT UNSETTLED TO ACTIVE LEVELS FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS. HIGH-SPEED SOLAR WIND, EMANATING FROM AN ELONGATED N-S CORONAL HOLE, SHOULD BEGIN TO IMPACT THE MAGNETOSPHERE JULY 7. THAT SHORT-LIVED DISTURBANCE SHOULD SUBSIDE BY THE END OF THE INTERVAL.
