Eureka LBNL Far-IR Lockman Hole (ELFLock) Overview
ELFLock Overview ELFLock Primary Data Access ELFLock Cutouts


The Eureka Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) Far-IR Lockman Hole (ELFLock) maps are intended to measure the Far-IR background radiation with 160-micron observations from the Multiband Imaging Photometer for Spitzer (MIPS). The download gives the largest contiguous low-cirrus 160 micron far-infrared map made with Spitzer data, covering 8.5 square degrees. It also differs from standard Spitzer-processed mosaic maps in that the background information is preserved, where it is normally removed by median filtering (for point-source studies). The map is composed of BCD data from S16 processing of data sets with these Spitzer Astronomical Observation Requests (AORs). Its flux units are MJy/Sr and the pixel size is 15.9", though flux = 0.0 for pixels without data.

For the maps, reductions, and validation procedures, please refer to Grossan, B. & Smoot, G. F. (2007).
