We present a full-sky 100 μm 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 100 and 240 μm data, we have constructed a map of the dust temperature so that the 100 μm map may be converted to a map proportional to dust column density. The dust temperature varies from 17 to 21 K, which is modest but… 

A COMPLETE Look at the Use of IRAS Emission Maps to Estimate Extinction and Dust Temperature

We have created new dust temperature and column density maps of Perseus, Ophiuchus, and Serpens using 60 and 100 μm data from the Improved Reprocessing of the IRAS Survey (IRIS) recalibration of

A MAP OF DUST REDDENING TO 4.5 kpc FROM Pan-STARRS1

We present a map of the dust reddening to 4.5 kpc derived from Pan-STARRS1 stellar photometry. The map covers almost the entire sky north of declination −30° at a resolution of 7′–14′, and is based

Constraining spatial extent and temperature of dust around galaxies from far-infrared image stacking analysis

We propose a novel method to constrain the spatial extent of dust around galaxies through the measurement of dust temperature. Our method combines the dust emission of galaxies from far-infrared

Determination of the Far-Infrared Cosmic Background Using COBE DIRBE and WHAM Data

Determination of the cosmic infrared background (CIB) at far-infrared wavelengths using COBE DIRBE data is limited by the accuracy to which foreground interplanetary and Galactic dust emission can be

intermediate results. Disentangling Galactic dust emission and cosmic infrared background anisotropies

Using the Planck 2015 data release (PR2) temperature maps, we separate Galactic thermal dust emission from cosmic infrared background (CIB) anisotropies. For this purpose, we implement a specifically

Determining thermal dust emission from Planck HFI data using a sparse, parametric technique

Context. The Planck data releases have provided the community with submillimetre and full-sky radio observations at unprecedented resolutions. We make use of the Planck 353, 545, and 857 GHz maps

Planck 2013 results. XI. All-sky model of thermal dust emission

This paper presents an all-sky model of dust emission from the Planck 857, 545 and 353 GHz, and IRAS 100 micron data. Using a modified black-body fit to the data we present all-sky maps of the dust

Galactic reddening in 3D from stellar photometry – an improved map

We present a new 3D map of interstellar dust reddening, covering three quarters of the sky (declinations of δ ≳ −30°) out to a distance of several kiloparsecs. The map is based on high-quality

Planck intermediate results. XLVIII. Disentangling Galactic dust emission and cosmic infrared background anisotropies

Using the Planck 2015 data release (PR2) temperature maps, we separate Galactic thermal dust emission from cosmic infrared background (CIB) anisotropies. For this purpose, we implement a specifically

Analyses of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation maps made by the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) have revealed anomalies not predicted by the standard inflationary cosmology.

A Limit on Galactic Extinction Not Correlated with Far IR Emission

We have reprocessed the IRAS and DIRBE full-sky 100 µm maps, using Hi as a zero-point, to produce a map of Galactic extinction. This map is cross-correlated with APM galaxy counts over the full APM

Maps of the IRAS large-scale 100 μm emission, after subtraction of a physical model for the zodiacal emission, are presented. There is a good detailed agreement with maps of the H I column density,

If the luminosity per mass of the universe at redshifts z = 5-1000 were at least comparable to its present luminosity, then a conspicuous cosmological infrared radiation background would be produced.
