Research output: Conference article


ISO observations opened a new window to the studies of the infrared cirrus, providing measurements surpassing IRAS in wavelength coverage, spatial resolution, number of photometric bands and spectroscopic capabilities. Although ISO was not designed for survey mode, many large areas were investigated and imaged, especially using the ISOPHOT-C cameras. These measurements provide an excellent data base to study the physical parameters, dust composition and spatial structure of the far-infrared cirrus emission in the Galaxy under various conditions.
