Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 15/2100Z to 16/2100Z: Solar activity has been at very low levels for the past 24 hours. There are currently 0 numbered sunspot regions on the disk. ===================================================================== IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low on days one, two, and three (17 Mar, 18 Mar, 19 Mar). ===================================================================== IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 15/2100Z to 16/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at unsettled to active levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 537 km/s at 15/2208Z. Total IMF reached 13 nT at 16/1755Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -9 nT at 16/1606Z.
