Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity

SDF Number 323 Issued at 2200Z on 19 Nov 2001

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 18-2100Z to 19-2100Z

Solar activity was low. Region 9704 (S18E02) produced a number of C-class subflares, the largest being a C4/Sf at 19/0701 UTC. This Region remains the most magnetically complex presently on the disk.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast
Solar activity is expected to be low to moderate. Region 9704 remains capable of M-class flares.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 18-2100Z to 19-2100Z
The geomagnetic field ranged from quiet to active levels. A shock was observed at the NASA ACE spacecraft at about 19/1735 UTC, followed by a sudden impulse at ground magnetometers (10 nT at Boulder) at about 19/1815 UTC. This shock is believed to be associated with a CME which occurred on 17 November. The greater than 10 MeV proton flux at geosynchronous orbit exceeded the 10 pfu event threshold at 19/1230 UTC. This event remains in progress with a maximum flux so far of 20 pfu at 19/2055 UTC. This event is believed to also be associated with the M2/1n/CME event on 17 November.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast
The geomagnetic field is expected to be unsettled to active for the next 24 hours becoming quiet to unsettled by the end of the three day forecast period. The greater than 10 MeV proton event is expected to end within the next 48 hours.
