We have made a Galactic extinction map of the Cygnus region with 5' spatial resolution. The selected area is 80{sup 0} to 90{sup 0} in the Galactic longitude and -4{sup 0} to 8{sup 0} in the Galactic latitude. The intensity at 140 {mu}m is derived from the intensities at 60 and 100 {mu}m of the IRAS data using the tight correlation between 60, 100, and 140 {mu}m found in the Galactic plane. The dust temperature and optical depth are calculated with 5' resolution from the 140 and 100 {mu}m… 
A New Galactic Extinction Map in High Ecliptic Latitudes
In this study, we derived a galactic extinction map in high ecliptic latitudes for |\beta| > 30 degrees. The dust temperature distribution was derived from the intensities at 100 and 140 \mu m with a
Gas and star formation in the Circinus galaxy
We present a detailed study of the Circinus galaxy, investigating its star formation, dust and gas properties, both in the inner and outer disc. To achieve this, we obtained high-resolution Spitzer
Fine structure of Galactic foreground ISM towards high-redshift AGN – utilizing Herschel PACS and SPIRE data
Abstract One of the most certain ways to determine star formation rate in galaxies is based on far infrared (FIR) measurements. To decide the origin of the observed FIR emission, subtracting the
Calibrating Milky Way dust extinction using cosmological sources
We constrain the light extinction properties of Milky Way dust. We investigated the correlations between dust column density as inferred from infrared data and the observed colours of celestial

The far-infrared signature of dust in high-latitude regions
We present ISOPHOT observations of eight interstellar regions in the 60-200 μm wavelength range. The regions belong to mostly quiescent high-latitude clouds and have optical extinction peaks from A V
Far-Infrared Spectral Observations of the Galaxy by COBE
We derive Galactic continuum spectra from 5-96 cm(-1) fromCOBE/FIRAS observations. The spectra are dominated by warm dust emission,which may be fitted with a single temperature in the range 16-21 K
EVIDENCE FOR DUST EVOLUTION WITHIN THE TAURUS COMPLEX FROM SPITZER IMAGES
We present Spitzer images of the Taurus Complex (TC). We take advantage of the sensitivity and the spatial resolution of the observations to characterize the diffuse infrared (IR) emission across the

The infrared emission from interstellar dust in the Small Magellanic Cloud is modeled using a mixture of amorphous silicate and carbonaceous grains, including a population of polycyclic aromatic
Far-infrared dust properties in the Galaxy and the Magellanic Clouds
A recent data analysis of the far-infrared (FIR) map of the Galaxy and the Magellanic Clouds has shown that there is a tight correlation between two FIR colours: the 60–100 and 100–140 μm colours.
