Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity

SDF Number 211 Issued at 2200Z on 29 JUL 2000

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 28-2100Z to 29-2100Z

SOLAR ACTIVITY HAS BEEN LOW. SEVERAL C-CLASS FLARES WERE OBSERVED, THOUGH MANY WERE OPTICALLY UNCORRELATED. AN OPTICALLY UNCORRELATED TYPE II SWEEP WAS OBSERVED AT 28/2222Z, MOST LIKELY RESULTING FROM ACTIVITY BEHIND THE LIMB. THE LARGEST FLARE OBSERVED WAS A C3.5/SF FROM REGION 9105 (N14E54). SMALLER C-CLASS/SF FLARES WERE OBSERVED FROM REGIONS 9100 (S29W28), 9103 (N08W11), AND NEW REGION 9107 (S19E69). REGION 9103 EXHIBITED CONTINUED GROWTH, WHILE REGION 9097 (N09W68) HAS FURTHER DECAYED. NEW REGIONS NUMBERED TODAY INCLUDE 9107, 9108 (S09W18), AND 9109 (S07E40).
IB. Solar Activity Forecast
SOLAR ACTIVITY IS EXPECTED TO BE LOW FOR THE NEXT THREE DAYS, WITH A CHANCE FOR ISOLATED M-CLASS FLARES. IIA. GEOPHYSICAL ACTIVITY SUMMARY 28/2100Z TO 29/2100Z: THE GEOMAGNETIC FIELD RANGED FROM PREDOMINANTLY ACTIVE TO MINOR STORM LEVELS, WITH AN ISOLATED PERIOD OF MAJOR STORMING AT HIGH LATITUDES. ACTIVITY WAS DUE TO CONTINUED EFFECTS OF TRANSIENT MATERIAL PASSAGE FROM THE CME OBSERVED ON 25 JULY. BY LATE IN THE PERIOD, THE GEOMAGNETIC FIELD WAS QUIET TO UNSETTLED.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast
THE GEOMAGNETIC FIELD IS EXPECTED TO BE UNSETTLED TO ACTIVE FOR THE NEXT THREE DAYS. ACTIVE LEVELS MAY BE OBSERVED IN CONJUNCTION WITH POSSIBLE INFLUENCE OF CORONAL HOLES EXPECTED BY DAY THREE.
