Abstract (from CDS):

Fluctuations in atmospheric emission introduce noise and systematic errors into measurements of polarization at far-infrared and submillimeter wavelengths. We describe a new analysis method that corrects for the bias and reduces the errors caused by the fluctuations. The method exploits repeated observations of a source and is especially effective on faint sources for which the polarized flux is on the same order as the atmospheric fluctuations.
