Maps of Dust IR Emission for Use in Estimation of Reddening and CMBR Foregrounds


We present a full sky 100μm map that is a reprocessed composite of the COBE/DIRBE and IRAS/ISSA maps, with the zodiacal foreground and confirmed point sources removed. Before using the ISSA maps, we remove the remaining artifacts from the IRAS scan pattern. Using the DIRBE 100μm and 240μm data, we have constructed a map of the dust temperature, so that the… (More)
