Galactic and extragalactic Faraday rotation
Here you can find the results of the two
et al. (2012) on Galactic Faraday rotation
et al. (2014) on Galactic and extragalactic
Faraday rotation. The treatment of the Galactic
foreground differs slightly with respect to the
assumptions made, most notably the inclusion of an
error variance correction factor for all data points
in the 2012 paper and only for a subset of the data
points in the 2014 paper. See the 2014 paper for the
detailed differences. In general, we recommend the use
of the newer results for both Galactic and
extragalactic studies, unless a specific assumption
made in the 2014 paper is unwanted.
