Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity SDF Number 213 Issued at 2200Z on 01 Aug 2005
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 31/2100Z to 01/2100Z: Solar activity was at moderate levels. Region 792 (N12E25) produced the largest flare during the period, a long duration M1/1f flare that occurred at 01/1351Z. This event generated an associated Tenflare (290 sfu), a Type IV radio sweep, and a CME that may have a weak geoeffective component. Region 792 underwent a decrease in sunspot number however, sunspot area has remained the same. This region continues to exhibit beta-gamma-delta magnetic features. Region 794 (S11E60) produced the second largest flare during the period, a C5 x-ray event that occurred at 01/1221Z. This region has shown growth in sunspot area over the interval. No new regions were numbered today.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be at moderate levels. Region 792 is capable of producing M-class flares.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 31/2100Z to 01/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was at quiet to active levels. The elevated activity may be attributed to a weak transient that was observed at the ACE spacecraft at approximately 01/0500Z. The greater than 10 MeV proton event that began at 27/2300Z ended at 01/1040Z, a maximum of 41 pfu occurred at 29/1715Z.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at predominantly quiet to unsettled levels. Isolated active conditions are possible on 04 August due to a glancing blow from the CME that was associated with the M1/1f flare that occurred today.
