For each pixel in a frequency map, noise weighting is used to compute the average temperature from the individual differencing assembly map values. Since there is only one differencing assembly for the K and Ka bandpasses, the K and Ka frequency maps are identical to the K1 and Ka1 differencing assembly maps. The Q map is the noise-weighted result from combining Q1 and Q2, V is derived from V1 and V2, and W derives from W1, W2, W3 and W4. The data provided in each frequency map consist of two fields for each pixel: - the thermodynamic temperature, in mK, and
- the effective number of observations, N_obs.
Pixel noise can be
evaluated from N_obs via
