Summary

In this posting we study the effects of different scan strategies in the presence of atmospheric effects on the forecasts of Neff.

Depth maps

Total depth 095GHz.png

Rows are minimum observing elevations of 30, 40 and 50 degrees.

Columns are no elevation penalty, with elevation penalty, and high cadence.
