To build the sky models the experiment bandpasses are already required.
So far nominal tophat bands are being used - a complete list of the center and width is
[https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1K3eqctftHE5fY36uCa_i9mwoCbyKG4o8P9eR5pib7ng in this spreadsheet].
The CMB-S4 specific band list is [[CMB-S4 frequency bands v1.99]].
What a tophat bandpass actually means is a little tricky and discussed in [[Bandpass Convention - What does flat mean]].
It seems that models 00/05/08/09 use nu^-2 in spectral radiance (SR) units, while models 01/02/03 use nu^0 in SR units. (What 06 uses is not known.)
=== Sky model 00 ===
This is simply LCDM + Gaussian dust + Gaussian Sync.
Since the dust and sync levels are set to the levels found in the BICEP/Keck field it wouldn't make any sense to use this model for a large sky fraction.
=== Sky Model 01 ===
This is [https://arxiv.org/abs/1608.02841 PySM] run in a1d1f1s1 mode - i.e. with the default settings for AME, dust, free-free and synchrotron.
=== Sky Model 02 ===
This is [https://arxiv.org/abs/1608.02841 PySM] run in a2d4f1s3 mode - [https://github.com/bthorne93/PySM GitHub] for some description of what this means.
=== Sky Model 03 ===
Versus 02 this switches the dust model to a Hensley/Draine model and is dubbed a2d7f1s3. (02 to 03 also marks the switch from pysm_1.0 to pysm_2.0 so the s2, f1, s3 components in principle change. Think the change is to do with the details of how the bandpass integration is being handled.)
=== Sky Model 04 ===
This model switches the dust model to a Tuhin Ghosh provided model which implements dust decorrelation. See [[HiDPol|HI-based dust polarization model for r forecasts]].
The AME, sync and free-free components remain the same as 03
=== Sky Model 05 ===
This is a toy model of dust which is highly decorrelated. See [[Toy highly decorrelated dust model]].
There is NO AME/sync/Free-free - only dust.
=== Sky Model 06 ===
This is a model from Raphael Flauger and Brandon Hensley based on [https://arxiv.org/abs/1705.01912 MHD sims] of galactic magnetic field populated with dust and relativistic electrons according to this recipe: [[File:sky_models.pdf]].
=== Sky Model 08 ===
This is the model 06 with an alternate electron energy spectrum which gives a synchrotron spectrum closer to reality.
=== Sky Model 09 ===
This is the [[Vansyngel Model]].

Revision as of 18:56, 5 February 2018

At the SLAC meeting it was agreed to separate "experiment definitions" (bands, resolutions, sensitivity level) from "sky models" (LCDM+dust+sync+). Each of these will be designated by a number. The combination of a given experiment definition XX acting on a given sky model YY will be designated XX.YY.

Experiment models, sky models and the datasets obtained by applying for former to the latter will be stored at NERSC at
/project/projectdirs/cmbs4/{expt_xx, sky_yy, data_xx.yy}

Sim Data Sets

Many of the possible xx.yy combinations have been generated and are available on NERSC.

Most of 02.00 through 02.09 exist - these are the "Science Book config".

Most of 04.00 through 04.06 exist - these are the "CDT report config".


Shared space is available on 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 are 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.
