Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity

SDF Number 075 Issued at 2200Z on 15 Mar 2008

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 14-2100Z to 15-2100Z

Solar activity was very low. New region 986 (S04W41) was numbered today. It was initially a Bxo Beta magnetic class, but has since deteriorated to an Alpha magnetic class.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast
Solar activity is expected to remain very low.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 14-2100Z to 15-2100Z
The geomagnetic field ranged from quiet to active levels. The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit remained at high levels.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast
The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet to active on days one and two (16-17 March) due to the continued influence of a coronal hole high speed stream. Quiet to unsettled conditions are expected on day three (18 March) as the effects of the high speed stream subside.
