Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity

SDF Number 082 Issued at 2200Z on 23 Mar 2005

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 22-2100Z to 23-2100Z

Solar activity was very low. Region 745 (N12E30) produced several low level B-class flares. New Region 746 (S11E07) was numbered today.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast
Solar activity is expected to be very low to low. A region that produced a backside CME on LASCO imagery at 21/1448Z is expected to rotate on the East limb sometime over the next few days.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 22-2100Z to 23-2100Z
The geomagnetic field was quiet to unsettled.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast
The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet to unsettled with a slight chance for isolated active periods on 24 and 25 March. Activity is expected to increase slightly on 26 March as a recurrent coronal hole high speed stream moves into geoeffective position. Expect unsettled to active conditions on 26 March.
