SAT Scanning Strategies I
In this post we collect results from separate SAT scanning studies for Chile (Deeper SAT from Chile and Deeper SAT from Chile II) and the South Pole (Deep SAT from the Pole, Wider SAT from the Pole and Wider SAT from the Pole II).
Here is a table of the scanning strategies and the resulting depth maps:
|Name||el_min [deg]||el_max [deg]||fsky (raw)||fsky (noise)||fsky (signal)||max. depth [µK/arcmin]|
The Chile deepest and the Pole widest maps have the same maximum depth. We show here the binned depth maps and depth maps truncated at nhit > nhitmax / 2. First for Chile:
and then for the Pole:
to show the difference in sky area. Each color corresponds to a 1µK range in depth.
