30th November


Solar wind parameters remained at background levels. However, a gradual
but steady increase in solar wind speed was observed throughout the
period following brief and intermittent phi angle changes. Once the phi
angle settled back into a positive (away) orientation, speeds leveled
off near 360 km/s for the rest of the period. The IMF total field
remained fairly consistent between 6 nT to 8 nT until the last few hours
where it realized a slight enhancement to 10 nT. The Bz component varied
between +7 nT and – 11 nT to start the period and remained variable
throughout.
