Revision as of 10:51, 8 November 2016

At the Chicago meeting it was agreed that it would be useful to provide common inputs for all science forecasting, to include extra-galactic foreground, galactic foreground and noise maps at a range of frequencies. It was further agreed that, in order to support the widest range of uses, these would be provided as all-sky HEALPix maps at Nside-8192.

Possible sky-model inputs are:

  • Extra-galactice: Alvarez/Battaglia/Bond, PSM
  • Galactic: pySM, PSM

Please add to these lists as appropriate.

Inputs will be hosted at NERSC, where everyone is welcome to sign-up for an account under the "Data Analysis for Post-Planck CMB Experiments" allocation (PI Borrill). The files will then be located in the shared CMB-S4 file space (/project/projectdirs/cmbs4). In order to manage this space, all files stored there should be owned by the cmbs4 project account but accessible to the cmbs4 group. To do this:

  • log in to the cmbs4 project account following the instructions [here]
  • sync the files to an appropriate subdirectory in the project space
  • ensure that the permissions are set appropriately (g+rX,o-rwx)

Remember to include a README and to post the details on this wiki page.

For any NERSC issues, including access to the filegroup and/or project account, please contact Julian Borrill.
