10th November

The solar wind parameters, measured at ACE, were indicative of coronal
hole high speed stream (CH HSS) onset. Solar wind steadily increased
from initial values near 400 km/s to maximum values near 662 km/s and
ended the period near 576 km/s. The total field strength ranged from 1
nT to near 10 nT while the Bz component ranged from +9 nT to -9 nT. The
phi angle transitioned from a negative (toward) sector to a positive
(away) sector with CH HSS onset and has settled into the positive (away)
orientation.
