Prepared jointly by the U.S. Dept. of Commerce, NOAA, Space Weather Prediction Center and the U.S. Air Force. Updated Mar 22 2200 UTC Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity SDF Number 082 Issued at 2200Z on 22 Mar 2012 IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 21/2100Z to 22/2100Z: Solar activity was low. Region 1440 (S25W38) produced todays only C-class flare at 22/1750Z. This region appears to be decaying and currently shows a beta-gamma configuration. Three new sunspot groups were numbered today: Region 1441 (S27W56), Region 1442 (N13E49) and Region 1443 (N16E62). All of these regions were small, quiet, and stable. IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low with a chance for an isolated C-flare from Region 1440. IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 21/2100Z to 22/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was quiet with an isolated unsettled period from 22/1800Z to 22/2100Z. Solar wind data appeared to indicate a solar sector boundary crossing at about 22/1930Z. The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit was at high levels throughout the period. IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet for the next three days (23-25 March).
