High Resolution Microwave Full Sky Simulalations
Infrared Galaxy Catalogs


The model considers two IR source populations, the basic population and the
very high flux population. In all cases, the format of the catalogs are as

-each line correspods to a distinct IR galaxy, with these entries:

COLUMN 1: Halo ID (integer kind=4)
COLUMN 2: ra (degrees, real kind=4)
COLUMN 3: dec (degrees, real kind=4)
COLUMN 4: redshift (real kind=4)
COLUMNS 5-10: fluxes at 30, 90, 148, 219, 277, 350 GHz in mJy units, (real kind=4)

* For the basic population, the data can be found in a set of smaller files,
  in ASCII format. All these files can be found in IRBasicPop.tar.gz.

  The smaller files are called 


  The integer "#" in the filenames are related to the flux of the sources
  within each file. For each IR source, the integer "#" is computed as

     #=INT(1+(nfiles-1.)*log(S/Smax)/log(S/Smin) ),



  Smin = 1.e-2,
  Smax = 3.e2,


  S is the 350 GHz flux of the IR source (in mJy).

  However, within each file, IR galaxies are *not* sorted in terms of their

* For the BLAST very high flux population, there is a file in ASCII
  format, called "IRBlastPop.dat".  This file has ~300 galaxies in an
