Solar activity report

Any mentioned solar flare in this report has a scaling factor applied by the Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC). Because of the SWPC scaling factor, solar flares are reported as 42% smaller than for the science quality data. The scaling factor has been removed from our archived solar flare data to reflect the true physical units.

Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity

SDF Number 091 Issued at 2200Z on 01 Apr 2010

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 31-2100Z to 01-2100Z

Solar activity has been very low. Region 1057 (N15W45) continues a slow decay. Region 1059 (S22E10) remains stable. An eleven degree filament disappeared near N26W31, between 01/0030-1355Z. No flares were observed during the past 24 hours.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast
Solar activity is expected to be very low.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 31-2100Z to 01-2100Z
The geomagnetic field has been at quiet to active conditions. The ACE spacecraft indicated the signature of a weak coronal hole high speed stream. Solar wind speed averaged approximately 410 km/s with IMF Bz ranging between -7/+8 nT.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast
The geomagnetic field is expected to be predominately quiet for the next three days (02-05 April).
