In science:

The dot-dashed lines represent the warm and cold components.
The SCUBA Local Universe Galaxy Survey II. 450 micron data - evidence for cold dust in bright IRAS Galaxies
Sν = Nw × ν β B(ν, Tw ) + Nc × ν β B(ν, Tc ) where Nw and Nc represent the relative masses in the warm and cold components, Tw and Tc are the temperatures, B(ν, T ) is the Planck function for each component, and β is the dust emissivity index (assumed to be the same for each).
The SCUBA Local Universe Galaxy Survey II. 450 micron data - evidence for cold dust in bright IRAS Galaxies
The relative contribution of the cold component to the SEDs shows a large variation (the best parameter to describe this would be Nc /Nw ).
The SCUBA Local Universe Galaxy Survey II. 450 micron data - evidence for cold dust in bright IRAS Galaxies
Fig. 2a shows an example of a very ‘cold’ SED where the cold component is clearly visible and, once the 450µm point is included, a single temperature fit is excluded.
The SCUBA Local Universe Galaxy Survey II. 450 micron data - evidence for cold dust in bright IRAS Galaxies
To try to determine whether or not a cold component is necessary, we also tried to fit isothermal SEDs to the expanded data sets for various assumptions about β .
The SCUBA Local Universe Galaxy Survey II. 450 micron data - evidence for cold dust in bright IRAS Galaxies
Uni = a uniform random selection between the two limits, Gau = drawn from a Gaussian distribution with mean µ and dispersion σ. (3) Cold temperature distribution.
The SCUBA Local Universe Galaxy Survey II. 450 micron data - evidence for cold dust in bright IRAS Galaxies
No entry indicates an isothermal model. (4) Emissivity index. (5) Distribution of ratio of cold-to-warm dust.
The SCUBA Local Universe Galaxy Survey II. 450 micron data - evidence for cold dust in bright IRAS Galaxies
Lowering the cold temperature slightly as in Model 4, solved this discrepancy.
The SCUBA Local Universe Galaxy Survey II. 450 micron data - evidence for cold dust in bright IRAS Galaxies
S450 /S850 (we could raise the cold temperature and lower β to produce the same ratio), this does not solve the problem with the IRAS/submm ratios which were all significantly different from the data in the lower β models.
The SCUBA Local Universe Galaxy Survey II. 450 micron data - evidence for cold dust in bright IRAS Galaxies
The same is true for the ratio of cold/warm dust, which was allowed to vary between 1–100 as per the two component fits.
The SCUBA Local Universe Galaxy Survey II. 450 micron data - evidence for cold dust in bright IRAS Galaxies
The results of the simulations of the 450/850µm ratio strongly favour β = 2, and for the 7 galaxies where a cold component is essential (Section 3.3), this is also the β value from the fit.
The SCUBA Local Universe Galaxy Survey II. 450 micron data - evidence for cold dust in bright IRAS Galaxies
Since there is abundant evidence in the literature for both cold components and β ∼ 2 we accept it as the best physical model for the SED.
The SCUBA Local Universe Galaxy Survey II. 450 micron data - evidence for cold dust in bright IRAS Galaxies
In contrast, the values of Lfir do not increase by much at all and this is simply because the long wavelength region, where the cold component has modified the SED, does not contribute much to the integrated energy.
The SCUBA Local Universe Galaxy Survey II. 450 micron data - evidence for cold dust in bright IRAS Galaxies
Solid line:– ‘cold dust mass’ function, dust masses are from Table 10 and from Paper I using a second cold component with Tc = 20 K and β = 2.
