Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity

SDF Number 239 Issued at 2200Z on 27 Aug 2001

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

Solar activity has been moderate. An M1 flare was observed at 27/0638 UTC. The LASCO images indicate the event was possibly from new Region 9601 (N10E85). Region 9591 (S18E07) remains strong and continues its beta-gamma-delta configuration. Four new regions were numbered today as regions 9598 (S18W75), 9599 (S18E65), 9600 (N17E82), and 9601.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast
Solar activity is expected to be moderate. Region 9591 is capable of producing M-class events with an isolated major flare possible.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 26-2100Z to 27-2100Z
The geomagnetic field has been quiet to active. A shock passed the ACE spacecraft at 27/1920 UTC and created a sudden impulse of 37 nt at the Earth at 27/1952 UTC.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast
The geomagnetic field is expected to active to minor storm conditions on 28 August as a result of the X5 event on 25 August. Unsettled to active conditions are expected on 29 August with quiet to unsettled conditions returning on 30 August.
