Description

This code serves as a supplement to the paper titled 'Two-year Cosmology Large Angular Scale Surveyor (CLASS) Observations: A First Detection of Atmospheric Circular Polarization at Q Band', The Astrophysical Journal, Volume 889, page 120, ADS. It simulates millimeter-wave atmospheric emission, including polarization. This emission is primarily from molecular oxygen, with emission by water vapor and the dry continuum also considered.

This code repository is available on Zenodo. Questions about the code or its use should be directed to Matthew Petroff (petroff@jhu.edu).
