Highlights of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
12 - 18 September 2016

Solar activity was at very low levels throughout the period. Region
2585 (N08, L=222, class/area=Ekc/590 on 03 Sep) was the largest and
most magnetically complex region on the disk this week, however, the
region only produced low-level B-class flare activity before
rotating out of view early in the period. Region 2592 (N14, L=027,
class/area=Bxo/10 on 18 Sep) produced several low-level B-class
flares in the latter half of the week, but was relatively simple
throughout the period. No Earth-directed coronal mass ejections
(CMEs) were observed this period.

No proton events were observed at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit reached
high levels on 12-14 Sep, moderate levels on 18 Sep, and were at
normal levels on 15-17 Sep.

Geomagnetic field activity was quiet on 13, 16-27 Sep and quiet to
unsettled on 12, 14-15, and 18 Sep under a mostly nominal solar wind
regime. is the U.S. government's official web portal to all federal, state and local government web resources and services.
