Abstract
The Diffuse Infrared Background Experiment (DIRBE) on board NASA's Cosmic Background Explorer (COBE) satellite has surveyed the entire sky in 10 broad photometric bands covering the wavelength region from 1 to 240 micrometers , at an angular resolution of 0.7 degree(s) (Boggess et al. 1992). the extensive spectral coverage of the DIRBE observations offers an unprecedented opportunity to undertake comprehensive large-scale studies of the content, structure, and energetics of the stellar and interstellar components of the Galaxy. Understanding the Galactic emission is not only a task of scientific value in its own right, but also a necessary step in the accurate extraction of faint cosmological emission from the DIRBE data.
