SUMMARY EXPLAINED

SUMMARY (Latest update 2014-04-23-09:25 CET)

Solar Activity Now
  • Solar cycle activity level below and on the solar surface is ( low max ).
  • Solar activity regions ( no ) and a CME ( no ) on the far side of the Sun are seen.
  • Solar activity regions on eastern limb are seen: ( no ).
  • Solar surface magnetic activity on Earthside is ( medium ).
  • Solar activity in the corona, (Earth-directed Coronal Mass Ejections; Major Solar Flares (last 24hr); Equatorial Coronal Holes):
    ( no; no; no).
Effects of Solar Activity: (Now; Past 24hrs)
  • Proton storms, and herewith radiation hazards to astronautes, satellite problems,
    and navigation system problems: ( no; no).
  • Radio blackouts, and herewith low frequency and HF communication problems: ( no; no ).
Forecasts of Effects of Solar Wind and Interplanetary Coronal Mass Ejections
  • Geomagnetic storms, (Kp >= 5 or Dst < -50 nT) and herewith problems for electrical systems such as power grid systems and gas piplines: (Forecasts of 3-hourly Kp-index and one-hourly Dst-index ).
  • Geomagnetically induced currents for one station in Southern Sweden: (30-minute forecasts of GIC).
