Foreground simulation requirements vary from group to group. Below each AWG describes what they require in foreground simulations in order for the data simulations made from those foreground models to be sufficient for addressing their flowdown questions.

Low-ell BB




  • Clusters: Something like the Websky extragalactic sky or Sehgal et al simulations are sufficient for cluster detection forecasting. Ideally have the simulated noise from the scanning strategy on top of that with the various depths from the deep and wide surveys would be ideal. Including variants of the experimental configurations would be great if we wanted to try and optimize for source science. A further iteration would be to have a simulated polarized extragalactic sky from websky or something like that.
  • Transients/GRBs: Can we inject sources into the TOD simulations? Can Toast do this? That's what we need.
