Highlights of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
01 - 07 February 2016
Solar activity was at low levels throughout the entire period.
Several regions produced low level C-class events, the largest a
C5/Sf at 04/1822 UTC from Region 2494 (S11, L=162, class/area
Dki/270 on 07 Feb). A filament eruption observed beginning on
05/1939 UTC near S19W28 was associated with a CME that is
anticipated to be a glancing blow midday on 09 Feb. Several other
small filament eruptions occurred but none were expected to be
No proton events were observed at geosynchronous orbit.
The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit was at
normal to moderate levels.
Geomagnetic field activity began the week at quiet to unsettled
levels. Active to minor storm conditions were observed early on 03
Feb due to a co-rotating interactive region (CIR) followed by the
onset of a positive polarity coronal hole high speed stream (CH
HSS). Quiet to unsettled conditions were observed during largely
nominal solar wind conditions from 04-07 Feb, with the exception of
an isolated active period on 07 Feb due to prolonged negative Bz.
